Authentic & Rare! PJ'S Carousel Collection. King, Heartbreaker & Brown Beauty! These exquisite pieces are MINT! Low Starting Price and No Reserve! I believe these retail for about $200.00 each.
The carousel pieces are proudly made in Newbern, VA. Each piece is cast from an original which was sculpted by local Virginia artists. Pieces are duplicated in miniature detail from actual photos of the original. The âeoeParkâe Collection are animals only from carousels in actual operation today.
