Rare to find and so beautiful, this early all original pull toy horse is a 19th century wonder. What a charmer, for those of you who collect horses, toys, or want to buy your favorite French or German doll a special gift for the holidays! What porcelain young lady wouldn't want a horse like this to ride? He will make such a gorgeous holiday decoration.
Hand carved wood frame, covered in burlap, then with real hide, just like the larger "ride - on" size horses so prized in the late 1800's. But this one is a more manageable size, also way more rare to find! He has real glass eyes, a fine modeled face and a sweetly modeled snout. He is on his original wood base with metal wheels, he retains his original harness. Such a find!
He has carved hooves, his hide does have some wear and pinpricks. But oh he is a wonder! He will be a special and very good friend for your favorite doll. Gorgeous displayed in your French Country home at Christmas time, and any time.
- Measures 17-1/4" x 6-1/2" x 17-1/2"h.
