Prater - Old Vienna amusement park






This large extremely rare antique Austrian bronze is a very good example of

 our general attitude.



A company, who offers all kinds of modern collectibles, sells new bronzes, sometimes with less quality and not the old paint. Right now they offer such a new piece at a much higher price than the antique one from one of the best workshops (Franz Bergmann passed already away in 1936!). They ask for $ 4950 and we, the Vienna Bronze Gallery, about $ 1000 cheaper! 




Here we have a true Austrian masterpiece, a fully functioning Merry-Go-Round with six happy animals.



It is beautifully hand painted with Alpine scenes and flowers as seen in the old days on real carousels or in museums like Ringling. Many photos and close ups have been shot to show you as much of the stunning detail as possible, but they do not do justice to the original piece. Don't forget that the thumbnails can be enlarged.

The merry-go-round spins and serves at the same time as a great music box. There is build in a Swiss movement by Reuge, which is not produced anymore since a long time . You turn the top clockwise to wind it up, it begins to move and you can listen to one of the famous Austrian waltzes (Blue Danube) of Johann Strauss, one of the great sons of this country.

No doubt, this heirloom is a true museums piece in astonishing good working condition. It must have spent all the time in a curio cabinet.  

Most of of the six delightful animals carry something typical for carnivals in their hands/paws, like a party whistle, a big lolly, an ice cone, 
and a colorful ball.
