Caring for your Carousel
Be careful winding the carousel and do
not force the movement when it becomes tight (about 6 half turns or 3
full turns is fully wound). The spring inside can be snapped if over wound.
The horses & rods are quite
delicate, so please take care not to push or force them as damage may occur.
The musical movement is sealed inside
and should not require any maintenance under normal use.
To remove dust, use a dry soft cloth or
soft makeup brush with NO cleaning solutions or polish. A low
pressure compressed air can cleaner (as used for cleaning computers)
can be used. Do not use any abrasive cleaners as this may damage the
Store at normal room temperature away
from direct sources of heat, sunlight & water.
Whilst the casting material used is very
stable it can move with slight temperature & humidity changes.
This can, on occasions, cause small imperfections particularly on
joints. This is perfectly normal and has no detriment to the quality,
strength or sound of your carousel.
Notes on Water Globes
Air bubbles within the globe can occur
naturally and are perfectly normal. There are various reasons why
water globes develop air bubbles and unfortunately there is no way to
guarantee your globe will remain bubble free.
Due to the nature of the 'magnification
effect' from the water within the round glass dome, the figure inside
may appear distorted at certain angles. This is perfectly normal and
is simply the glass dome & water causing a trick of the eye.
Please be careful when winding the globe
from the bottom. They are heavy and if dropped or knocked can break.
The spring mechanism can be quite stiff, but do take care not to over wind.
