King Arthur Carrousel - Looff: Identified by the scalloped, red saddle straps carved across his shoulders and flanks, Looff is named for one of America's most famous carousel carvers.
Charles I.D. Looff was a master carver who immigrated to the United States from Denmark. He and his family were famed for building beautiful hand-carved carousels and other amusement park attractions. Looff built the first Coney Island carousel, the Crescent Park Carousel in Rhode Island and California's Santa Monica Pier.
