more for large standing horses, which
require heavier crates.

the Feltman and Stubbmann
Flying Horses Policy
Horses is dedicated primarily to the enhancement
of the carousel. With carousel figures increasing steadily
in value as collector's items and museum display pieces at the same
time that the classic carousels have become almost prohibitively
expensive to maintain as public attractions, the merry-go-round
itself is in grave danger of extinction.
In order to help preserve the remaining classics, we will carefully
avoid encouraging the retirement of any intact, operating
carousel. Through our research and correspondence we hope to encourage the formation
of conservationist groups who could underwrite the expenses
of beleaguered machines to continue their operation as historical
and artistic landmarks.
We will continue to seek and make available for sale those carvings
which can be preserved from
previously decommissioned machines or recently operated rides
with no hope of restoration as a unit. We welcome information
leading to the purchase of such
carvings (chariots, rims, and incidental decoration
as well as figures) and we offer a commission for successful
leads. We are always anxious to augment our research archives with
documents and photographs relating to the outdoor amusement
industry, either through
purchase of the originals or permission
to make copies.
We ask our customers to share our respect for the artistry of carousel
carvings. We regard the carvings
offered by us to be too rare and beautiful to be sawed in half,
sandblasted or exposed to weather. Please do not order any
figure from us for inappropriate
exploitation or exposure.
