1950's Buster Brown Shoe Store 6 Horse Ride. Selling No Reserve Beginning Sept.
This collectible will be auctioned off beginning Sept. 19th and sold no reserve to the highest bidder. Estimated value $900 - $2500
Very Rare Merry Go Round Carousel 1950s. Manufactured in Santa Ana, CA for the Buster Brown Shoe Stores. These were put in stores to entertain the children while the parents shopped.
They came in 4 and up to 6 horse merry go rounds. This is the 6 horse ride on. We acquired this from one of the relatives of the original owner who had a Buster Brown Shoe Store in the west side of Chicago. It is complete and only thing missing is the hair and tails from the ponies. This can easily be fabricated. It is in excellent condition for its age showing normal wear, scratches and paint loss.
Through out the years the only thing that has been replaced are some tires. All the wood horses and metal parts are in very good shape.
The diameter of the circle is approximately 68 inches. The ponies are approximately 28" high from bottom of tire to top of head by 22" long.
They all have the old vintage horse character names like. King, Silver, Ginger, Fury, Beauty and Flicka. It operates and functions very well. Very hard to come by in this amazing condition.
Thank you for your interest! We'll get back to you soon!
