Early 20th Century French Pull Along Papier Mache Toy Pig
A highly decorative example of an early 20th century papier mache pull along toy pig. Larger than the normal examples this item has had lots of hours of play time, a rare survivor even in its worn condition. The character filled pig is hand crafted from papier mache and hand painted. Completely untouched in form this figure is mounted to a pine base with cast metal original wheels still attached. Now that piggys play time is over it is for more decorative purposes and would look great stood in the corner of a room.
Size in inches of the ark: H 11” x W 17” x D 6”
Origin: France
Period: 1900 - 1920
Material: Papier Mach / Cast metal and Pine
Condition: Completely solid in structure and form, fading and wear across all the surfaces of this object. The papier mache is missing due to its years of use in sections (specifically across the back). With numerous splits across the face and rare of the object. The item is firm and not falling apart (its just aged this way). The wheels are rusty, and the pine base is also worn with a lovely natural patina as shown. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas in this piece, therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.

Period: 

1920
