Merry-go-round animals were often very beautiful, so stunningly painted. The finest were made in America in the first two decades of the 20th century. They were carved in wood and elaborately painted. Carousel animals have great appeal for many of us, not only for their lifelikeness and artistry, but also because they remind us of the freshness of childhood.
It is, and was, a wonderful thing to be able to safely ride on the back of a wondrous greyhound such as this lovely fellow.
Ungreeted inside, this clever notecard features a three-panel card. The die cut greyhound folds forward, the next background panel lifts up and the back panel features a blank area for your own note. The 7 by 5 inch card is accompanied by a silver metallic envelope.
