Miniature Carousel Builders Corner

This month's beautiful example of carousel art was constructed by Ken Adams, Charter Member and former President of the Miniature Carousel Builders organization.

The carousel was built in the early '90's and took between four and five months to complete. This is the third of six carousels constructed by the builder. Before retirement, Ken was the owner of an upholstery business. With his skills and talent, he made the vinyl burgundy and white carousel top, as well as tops for numerous club members.

The Details:
Base: 30" x30"
Carousel: 27" Diameter, 18" Height
Twelve sweeps, three rows
Scale: 5/8" = one foot
Pit Type - Circa 1905

This Pit Type carousel was hand-made except for the ceramic and porcelain animals and chariots. It features a menagerie of 32 animals and two chariots which were hand painted by the builder.

Lights, jumping animals and music enhance the beauty of this miniature carousel.
