Child's Painted Wood Hoop Toy

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Graphic bent wood hoop painted in 4 colors. A classic early child's toy that was often rolled with a stick. The hoop is mounted free standing as a work of minimal art. It is in great condition with vibrant paint. You will sometimes see 19th c. portraits of children painted with a hoop toy. In the early 20th c. we have the DeChirico painting with the running girl with hoop in the train station yard. Four color paint decoration is the rarest.
