We recently got these carousal bench ends into our store. Our best guess is that they're from Paris. I'd be hard pressed to find a costumer with a carousal in their backyard looking for the perfect pair of bench ends, don't ya think? What else could they be used for!? We've had a lot of people walk by and comment on them, but no takers yet (for lack of a vision, I'm guessing!)

Any and all thoughts are appreciated!

Nope, we got three sets of them in, but they're all the crane.

HI -- Those are wonderful --What are you asking for them and are you selling them separate or all together ?? How much for one ? I could see one of these set on a big fireplace mantel or have four of them made into a base for a large glass topped dining table, and I would NOT paint them . I would leave them just as they are . One or two of them would be perfect displayed on those annoying architectural ledges they have in houses now . They could also be made part of a bed headboard and footboard . They could also just be remade as a bench(s) again for an eating area or in an entrance . I would NOT use them outside . They should be saved !

It sort of makes me think of McBird I saw here a few days ago. http://www.houzz.com/discussions/397970/Tiny--tiny-cottage

lefty47, great ideas! We're selling them however anyone wants to buy them! We have two sets, going for $1500 as a pair or $850 for just one. I definitely wouldn't use them outside either- I would hate to see them fade or rot!
