Oh hey that fiberglass carousel is at South Coast Plaza like a mile from me :)

Any idea if this may be off a carousel or what carver?

To me it looks like maybe U. S. Merry-Go-Round Company but I'm not sure. Or Carmel. It might also be a refake. Experts please weigh in!

Anyone have any idea of carver?  Thanks for any help!

Looks like M.C. Illions to me.

looks like an inside row jumper by m c illions. marianne stevens used to call these "bottle openers" because of the undercut lower jaw. hard to say, but looks like part of the tail has been replaced

Did Illions and Looff have similar carving styles? I'm looking at the Dentzel/Loof at Casino Pier and some of the horses on that have similar characteristics.

I'd also say Illions, though from the first photo it's hard to tell due to the size. Head and saddle blanket give it away.
