Pair of 1960s Vintage Fairground Dolphins

Dipper and Flipper are awaiting news on their next owners both having spent a busy life in amusements – so it’s rest time for these two happy chappies, are you able to give two retired dolphins a new home?

Surviving from around the 1960s these fibreglass dolphins make great talking points and make a change from pictures etc for the home or commercial space. They are the same size and sit on strong metal bases making them rigid when in situ and they are also heavier than you think...

Condition wise we are talking well played with and enjoyed. One has enjoyed a historic respray in places and we have numerous marks and little cracks in the models - these are original not new ones after all. The images tell the story of these two.

Looking for something a little different for display purposes, then these are rather cool.

The price is for the pair delivered.

Billy Hunt is an independent partnership based in a wonderful Victorian Farming Buiding once used to stable Dray Horses for Bass Brewery and with the assistance of technology, enjoys serving customers nationally and internationally. The collaboration of successful Interior Designer Martina Reitbauer and Ardent Gatherer Wayne Lawless brings to you an exciting and ever evolving selection of items for your home which do not have the constraints of a particular era, no onus on any particular style or a brand agenda to respect.

We choose to source across the UK believing that the British Isles offers a splendid mix of fine quality, true eccentricity, creative design and exceptional craftsmanship which very few can equal.

We take pleasure in gathering pieces from country houses, time-worn factories and auctions travelling extensively to seek out the appealing. You will notice when viewing our collection, we are not afraid to evolve furniture, recognise the need to modernise but are also content to leave “as found” aiming to create a piece or pieces that are beautiful, distinctive and a delight to live with.

Our wish is to show you some wonderful items that you would love to own and offer a service which is personal, professional, considerate and a pleasurable experience. You are able to view our stock in person by appointment, just contact us to arrange a convenient time here.
