It's a Duck. Wonderful form with great original paint over solid carved wood. This child's ride is made just like the large ones, pieces of wood carved into the form and painted. the ride this came from I believe was French. The ride featured different forms from cartoons, fairy tales etc. and date from the early to mid 1900's. The creatures are an interpretation of famous characters, this one could be Donald Duck style.
The condition is very good with some minor paint chips. We have mounted him on an iron stand that can be adjusted in height from 34" high (19 1/2" from ground to seat), to 44 1/4" high (31" from ground to seat) on a heavy plate that is 12 1/4" x 28".
The duck itself is 28" long x 30" high and 7 1/2" wide. Wonderful painted surface.
