Perhaps one of the most asked about items in our store, the famed Brass Ring.
What does the Brass Ring symbolize?
Well, in the good ole' days, many carousels had a challenge for all outside row horse riders. Since most outside row horses were Standers, i.e. non-jumping horses, many people didn't want to ride'em. They wanted a Jumper.
In order to get them to go to the outside row, ride operators devised a game whereby outside row riders would make attempts at stretching out and grabbing metal rings from a long armed dispenser positioned just far enough away to make it challenging. Most of the rings snatched in this way were not brass. However, every so often, a Brass Ring would be caught, usually one per ride.
The Brass Ring could be used for a free ride, or kept as a good luck charm. We hope it brings some happiness to your home and reminds you of the simple, wholesome pleasure that carousels have offered Americans for over 100 years.
We are also are offering special discounts for large orders, and we have a few nickel-plated steel rings available. Write for details.
