This is a copy of a popular stander by M.C. Illions. It is part of the "Carousel Memories Americana" Collection
from Willitts. The run numbers on these are 9500 for the brass base, not sure what the others are/were.
This piece came with several different base configurations. I have personally seen it with a rectangular music-box
base, and the rectangular brass base. The piece is about 6-7" to the top of the pole. There will be a coin
set into the base of the "Carousel Memories Americana" series of horses to identify them as special editions.
The average price of this piece when new was $40-$65.
