Folk Art Eiffel Tower Ferris Wheel
This is a interesting and odd "French Folly". It combines the Eiffel Tower with a floating gondola/boat style Ferris Wheel. It's complete and rotates freely. The wood fretwork and paint are beautiful with an original patina. This is a nicely detailed and imaginative piece of Folk Art. 24 in.Hx16 in.Wx12 in.D $675
