NEW IN OUR SHOWROOM – A Rolls-Royce Grand Affair
In a historic one-off, iconic British motor car and engineering company, Rolls-Royce – in ‘an everlasting expression of the exceptional’ – made this fairground ride. This ‘worker’s carousel’ was built by them in the 1930’s to entertain workers on their field days.
And now it is in our Littleboy’s showroom!
The roundabout has 24 horses which were cast in the aluminium foundry at Rolls-Royce in Derby, and which are fitted with leather saddles and reins.
Giving a horse a name: The 12 outside horses are named after famous Rolls Royce cars and aero engines, such as Ghost, Shadow, Merlin, Phantom.
It is thought to be the only carousel made by the engineering company, and we have the absolute privilege to have assembled it in our showroom. It will be listed on our website to be sold, but while it’s here with us, we are enjoying every bit of living classic history – at Littleboy’s!
From time to time we plan to hold open days for enthusiasts to visit us to experience our showroom and browse our stock. These will become major dates in the Vintage Fairground calendar to which we will also invite book stands, other exhibitors, fairground modellers and special guest visitors.
These events will appeal to visitors of all ages and will rekindle the memories of the older visitor and introduce a new generation to the magic of Vintage Fairground attractions.
Please note, our showroom can also be visited by appointment for customers wishing to view the items for sale on our website. Anyone wishing to arrange a viewing should email firstname.lastname@example.org
