Here comes a so called “Odenwälder Gäulschen”, roughly translating into “workhorse from the Odenwald” a rustic and traditionally primitive midi sized horse with original leather bridle on a wooden base with wheels. Those sweet and shabby chic toy horses were first made around 1860 in the south of Germany and there were 23 manufacturers in their heyday, today only one such manufacturer remains, and they produce those horses now in very limited numbers. Our old white horse here was made in the 1930s or earlier, the material and quality of the handiwork suggesting rather an earlier date.
As you can see in the photographs our antique white horse here was clearly played with, but is in good vintage condition, its tail is made of a plant fiber and has lost a bit in length, some colour abrasion is to be seen, there is an old restoration on the front, but all is very stable! The overall condition is amazingly sound – advantage of the solid if primitive design and make!
PLEASE, do be aware that this listing is for the old horse on wheels ONLY!
Our antique wooden white horse measures: 28 cm / 11 inches by 9 cm / 3 ½ inches on the base, 11 cm / 4 ½ inches wide wheel to wheel; 27 cm / 10 ½ inches nose to tail, 32 cm / 12 ½ inches tall to its greatest extend.
*Please notice: This vintage horse pull toy belongs not into the hands of children; it is not a children’s toy, as it possibly not fulfills the safety standards of our times! It is strictly an adult collector’s item for display & decoration only!
