The two carousel horse ornaments on this page were done for
Enesco by Tobin Fraley, a renown artist in the area of Carousel
Carousels and their restoration was a family business begun
when Fraley’s parents inherited an amusement park carousel
from their father. Tobin completed a year long apprenticeship
with a woodcarver and afterwards returned to his parents'
carousel art business and began his career in carousel horse
In 1990 Enesco began a Carousel Horse series that ended in
1997 after the 2 designs created for them by Tobin Fraley.
They are made of Artplas which is Enesco’s own moldable
poly material that, while durable, is not a rigid plastic but a
semi - pliable substance very much resembling rubber in its
nature. Enesco, headquartered in Itasca, Ill., is a global leader
in the giftware and home and garden décor industries.
