19th Century Folk Art Child’s English Horse Toy

About

A handmade late 19th century Folk Art child’s simply formed horse toy, circa 1880 made from scratch and materials including faux leather seat cover, wooden sectioned form, cast metal wheels and brass studs in places across the eye and mouth section. A unique item and not commercially made as many were of this period. This item has been handmade likely by someone for their child, there is still elements of decorative painted sections as shown in the photos provided. A museum piece in our opinion, English in its origin and recently uncovered in a country house attic where it sat for over 20 years before we obtained it. Dimensions in inches: H 14 x W 8 x D 24 Origin: England Period: 1880 Condition: Aged through wear and tear is present across this item, fading of the surface in sections is present, a wonderful patination across the wood with loads of character through is many years of use and hardship, there are no breaks across this item although some make shift sections have been added still inline with this item original look. Please view all the photos as part of this advert, before a purchase is made.
