ANTIQUE WHITNEY REED VELOCIPEDE TRICYCLE PULL TOY DAPPLE HORSE. Up for sale is this Whitney and Reed Velocipede or Child's Tricycle ca.These dates are based on research on the internet we found as to the dates that Whitney Reed was making toy horses. The horse measures 42 L x 26 H x 20.5 W from hub to hub. The horse has two pedals that move back and forth and drive the offset axle in the back to move the horse. The front wheel has the two legs that are jointed so that when the horse moves the legs look like he's galloping. His head controls the direction and you can turn his head and the front wheel turns with it. The back legs are not connected to the pedals and probably were at one point. Now they just hang down and don't move with the movement of the horse. The horse little round eyes and large spoked wheels and hard rubber tires.
He has no mane or tail. He's a super cute horse. He's a nice dapple horse with an off-white background and soft black spots.
Underneath he has a red metal support structure that connects to the carriage / seat. You can see some cracks and joints here and there. This is common and expected from and old horse like this.
He has a cute "let's go" look to him. The horse still moves when you pedal him but we do not recommend using this as an actual play toy for children. As you'd expect, there are scuffs and paint loss, cracks, scrapes, scratches, nicks, dings, cracks edge wear, smudges and patina!
