19th Century folk art rocking horse
We are proud to offer a highly decorative mid-19th Century example of a European rocking horse. Made from sectioned pieces of hardwood, carved by hand, and featuring a wonderful carved wooden horse’s head. This item is untouched in form, with all its original paint and sections intact. The object works perfectly which is credit for the extraordinary craftsmanship of the maker. The head on this rocking horse is what makes it so unique and decorative we believe, object of nostalgic playful beauty. This item was discovered in Germany earlier this month in a private collection of antique toys.
Size in inches: H 24” x W 44” x D 15”
Origin: Germany
Period: 1870
Material: Hand wood
Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form, crackled paint, worn surfaces, missing carved sections, natural wooden splits and a natural patina make it highly decorative in our opinion. The object weights close of 20kg as it is made from hardwood. please review all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.
