One of four created with backgrounds, and each one showcasing a particular style (American, English, German, and French)
of carousel horse.
The base contains a music box that plays "Here, There, and Everywhere".
The horse on this carousel shows
the typical English configuration - English carousels (roundabouts) rotated opposite to those of the rest of the world
(clockwise rather than counter-clockwise), so the romance side (most decorated side) was on the left side of the horse rather
than the right. The reason for the opposite rotation was that the counter-clockwise rotation of regular carousels
encouraged poor horsemanship - it caused the riders to mount their horses on the improper side. The
backpiece mural depicts St. George and the Dragon.
This piece was limited to a run of 9500 total.
