This Trojan Jumper "Commanche" was carved in 1916 at the Allan Herschell factory
in Tonawanda, NY . That factory is now the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum
where "Commanche" rides what is believed to be the first carousel
shipped from that factory. The Trojan mane is an excellent example of the
horses produced there.
With large head, chunky body, and legs gathered underneath
in a gallop, Commanche exemplifies Allan Herschell carousel horses. But the
rare blue eye on the romance side makes him even more special.
