Offered on behalf of the Wood collection is this CHOICE, carved wooden horse glider with ALL of its bells and whistles: horsehair mane and tail, bridle, wood and leather saddle (wear to leather saddle), leather harness, cut velvet blanket, glass eyes, iron-mounted wooden frame, and even horseshoes! This rocking horse and the antique sleigh you see in the last photo are some of my favorite pieces from the collection I am currently selling. Those two pieces were purchased from a museum deaccession auction long ago.
Retaining its original paint on the horse and wooden base, the horse has a fabulous face with an open mouth and amber glass eyes and is attached to his painted wooden platform via red metal rods allowing the horse to glide back and forth. It is amazing to me that a toy such as this, meant to be played with, has survived in such fine condition.
Measurements: Horse alone: hoof to head 20" tall, 37" long Overall height: 31" tall, 12" wide
