A pair of papier maché working grey horses, ' pull toys,' probably 1890c and made in Austria. I say ' probably' as many were , I am afraid, made by people in the twentieth century in the style of the Victorian period ones ! This pair was purchased from a reputable dealer here in Zurich, Switzerland as being from 1890 c.!

The two are wonderfully decorated , with a great look. They certainly look the part - however, collectors will have to form their own opinion on the pair.

Size : L. 18 cm. ( 7 3/32" ) x B. 6.5 cm. ( 2 9/16" ) x H. 18.5 cm. ( 7 9/32" ).

Weight of the pair : 680 g. ( 1 lb. 8 oz. )

Condition : some cracks to the papier maché and some pulling chains missing and logs from one horse missing. The metal wheels function well. Some minor chips to the paint.
