Swedish Toy Horse from the Gemla Factory

$2,400

About

Sweden’s first toy factory was opened in Gemla in 1866, and this sturdy horse was made shortly after that date, circa 1870. He has a friendly, alert expression with perked leather ears and painted eyes. The mane is painted, but his tail is real horse hair.
