Jacques

Jacques - Carousel style

 

Jacques is a beautiful carved wooden carousel-style horse on wheels, mounted on rockers. He detaches from the base so that he may be used on wheels or mounted on the stand as a rocker, which would have made him a very versatile toy.

We think Jacques would make a lovely display piece, however he is large enough for a toddler to ride if wished.
