An early 20th century child's large wooden folk art type toy horse and wagon on wheels. Made in Germany (as can be authenticated by the advertising on the side of the wagon). Also the country where the majority of these type of horses originate. I had believe the dapple horse is made of papier mache as it is so light but there may be wood as well.The harness is made of leather and the tail and mane are real hair. The wooden wagon is painted green and is a lovely shape with the back door able to be opened.
The advertising is to both sides of the wagon and I can translate to "Furniture Transport, Railway & Land".. Not sure of the other words.
Measures 27cms height x 68cms length. The shafts are articulated which makes it easier to transport. Dates to early 20th century.
Condition is very good for age. There is some wear to the horse (see last 2 pics) but I would class it as minimal.
Once a child's toy, now a great piece of folk art. Will be posted out by tracked courier to uk or overseas (US & Europe). Please ask for an accurate quote to overseas.I will only send by tracked reliable courier at the most reasonable cost possible.
