The 1914 PTC #33 Carousel at Como Park St.Paul, MN. Model: #33 An oddity of the Cafesjian Carousel is that all horses are what is known as "dapple gray" horses. Dapple gray horses are gray with whitish spots scattered over their bodies. Most carousels feature horses with a variety of coat color, particularly white. Many existing carousels have more fanciful color schemes because horses have been repainted over the decades to make them appealing to new generations of young riders. Model: #33
CAROUSEL GOAT "PTC #9." IN NATURALISTIC COLORS WITH A POLYCHROME SADDLE, CIRCA 1905. Made by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, which last operated in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania. The carousel was shipped back to the factory in 1925 for refurbishment; this figure retains the paint from that time period.
