This sculptural small-scale wooden rocking horse may have been intended for play use with a medium to large doll or for display as a salesman's sample. It is not usable as a functional child's rocking horse. It has original elaborate painted details on the saddle, bridle, head, tail and on numerous gold medallions on the torso, which probably mimic the cast brass horse decorations of a parade horse. The paint glows through a deep patina of multiple layers of old varnish.This folk art would be a great decoration displayed on a wall-mounted shelf. Condition: Excellent, painted decoration in original condition w/ deep patina. Old repaired crack near base of tail.
