Back by popular demand - The Cazenovia Abroad Sterling Carousel Ornament -
The first ornament to make the return - The Carousel Rabbit
The modern carousel emerged from early jousting traditions in Europe and the Middle East during The Crusades. Knights would gallop in a circle while tossing balls from one to another; an activity that required great skill and horsemanship. By the early 18th century carousels were being built and operated at various fairs and gatherings in central Europe and England.
Soon after more than just horses donned the carousel. Carousel manufacturers created all sorts of different carousels to incise riders. These intricate animals came from all corners of the animal kingdom. One of them was - The Rabbit
One of the most popular carousel carving companies - the Gustav and William Dentzel -was the only company to carve carousel rabbits in America.
