The Steeplechaser. An Anonymous Quebec Wood Carving. Circa 1900.

Originally made for a racing game aboard the Canada Steam Ship Saguenay cruise ships (Montreal, Quebec City, Murray Bay). This Steeplechaser, Number 14, was one of a set that raced on a track aboard the cruise ships to entertain the passengers on the St. Lawrence – Saguenay cruises.

Found in Quebec; this carving dates from the early part of the last century. It is full of energy and movement and retains its original colour. It is carved in a hard wood (Birch) by an anonymous artist; probably from the Quebec City – Charlevoix County area. About 15 inches long.           SOLD
