Geri occupies the outer ring of row 1. She's older than the rest of the figures on the carousel, and is estimated to have been carved around 1895. (The saddle style and mirrored jewels are typical of this era.)
She's also possibly the only figure on the carousel carved personally by Charles Looff, as the style and time period match closely with other known works of Charles Looff.
Named after Geri Sperling, Geri is available as a limited edition miniature
carousel reproduction (by Jerry Reinhardt) through the
Riverfront Park gift shop!
