This is a fascinating little miniature sterling silver figure of a sleigh drawn by a pair of oxen. It is unmarked except for a possible illegible mark on the back end. The metal content tests positive for silver content of sterling grade. The sleigh has curved sled runners, a pair of seats facing each other, and a canopy overall. The sides have an etched design. The oxen are well formed, with curved horns and are yoked together.
The total length is 2.5" x .75" wide and 1" tall. It weighs 21.6 gr.
Condition is overall good. All is intact. The silver is heavily patinated. This appears to be a handmade piece. There are irregularities in the metal and it's hard to say whether any are from the making or from from wear and tear.
Unknown where this was made but it certainly has a good bit of age to it. A charming addition to a miniatures collection.
