Wonderful antique composition hand painted stick leg horse measuring 2-1/2" long and 3" in height. Featuring lovely detail, horse is painted with black spotting on brown with lighter legs - he wears a star accented paper saddle blanket, faux stamped leather English saddle and breast collar with Dresden accent. His head is beautiful with elegant lines, tiny eyes, painted features, and a rabbit fur mane and tuft tail.
Condition is wonderful - he has an unusual stance - one leg forward and raring to go - he stands securely with no wobble - other than a few minor nicks to his hoof paint and some cracking around where the legs are securely fitted into the composition body, I see no damage. Just a charming old horse - German in origin, dating first part of the 1900s. Perfect in any holiday display, and a wonderful addition to your collection of antique stick toy animals or putz toys!
