Welcome to the Magic Carousel Art

Rusty and Kate Donohue of Americana Antiques have been active in the world of Antique Carousel Art for nearly 30 years and have gained a national reputation as experienced and knowledgeable dealers, brokers, appraisers, experts and, most importantly, as collectors and lovers of these magnificent carved wooden figures.

Americana Antiques has set a number of World Record Prices as buyers and sellers of carousel horses and menagerie figures and has purchased, sold, and brokered entire machines.

Americana Antiques sells only original antique wooden carousel figures. We do not handle casted, fiberglass, or reproduction figures except as clearly identified. Authenticity is guaranteed by a detailed bill of sale disclosing all known information on the carousel figure (maker, date, any provenance or history, condition, size, etc.). Except as noted, there are no replaced/recarved parts or any repairs except those normally made during professional restoration.

Our reputation is as important to us the quality of carousel figures we sell.
We make every effort to assist and satisfy our clients to the best of our ability
