Vintage Carved Wooden Horse on Wheels with Rider
is a hand-made wooden horse with a rider that looks like it was carved
from one piece of wood. The horse and rider are carved together. There
are no identifiable marks on it that points to its origin, year or
maker, but it appears to be somewhat old.
horse is mounted on a piece of wood that has four wheels, however the
wheels do not rotate. The nails that hold the wheeled frame to the base
and on the horse's harness, do not look modern. The wheels do not
rotate, however the arms on the rider move up and down a little, the
right more than the left, but I don't want to force it to see its limit.
harness is nailed around the horse's head and wrapped around the
shoulders of the rider. The horse is painted with a combination of
rust-brown, yellow and mustard-like colors. The rider has red pants, a
blue shirt and red cap.
Measures: Approximately 8" long x 10" high x 2.57" wide.
Weighs: 1 pound 3 ounces.
it's hand-carved and old there are marks and scrapes throughout the
body. What stands out is blue-chipped paint on the left forearm, on the
back of the jacket collar and a small chip below the horse's mouth. The
joints on the arms by the shoulders are recessed like there used to be
some sort of plug in them.
Otherwise, just a nice little collectible piece for the horse aficionado.
