Spokane Riverfront Park Collection
Riverfront Park #1
“Oliver’s Pride”, so named because it was Bill Oliver’s favorite, is one of the six “armoured” horses personally sculpted by Charles Looff for the carousel.
Riverfront Park #2
“Snow Dancer” is an example of Charles Looff’s famous Coney Island carving style, and one of the few he carved with a closed mouth smile.
Riverfront Park #3
Looff was the only carousel manufacturer to produce a tiger in this stalking, pouncing pose. Of those three, only “Sneaky” can still be seen and ridden on an operating machine. The other two are in private collections.
Riverfront Park #4
“Looffun” was always a favorite of Geri Sperling, step-daughter of Lloyd Vogel, the owner of Natatorium Park.
Riverfront Park #5
Looff carved this magnificent horse in a full gallop. “Rainbow Warrior” strains at the bit, charging into the wind.
Riverfront Park #6
“Daisy” - also known as the"Wishing Horse”. Legend has it, if you catch the Brass Ring while riding her, your wish will come true.
Riverfront Park #7
Dressed in Gothic style, “Chastity” boasts medieval jewelry and the signature Looff front piece in a star pattern.
Riverfront Park #8
“Cisco” - Carved in “Stargazer style”, head back and ready to lunge forward.
