FABULOUS EARLY AAFA LARGE ANTIQUE FOLK ART PRIMITIVE WOOD DAPPLE TOY ROCKING HORSE. Up for sale is this wonderful large dapple rocking horse. He's in great condition for his age. He has a nice happy look to him!
He's a white wood horse with a red and black bridle with metal rosettes and a. He has cute, large, round metal eyes that have worn over the years. Around his mouth he has some wear where the bridle / bit was and some scuff on the end of his nose. He has a very cool leather saddle made from an old gunpowder bag. His stirrups are also leather and have either dried out or have some white stuff on them.
We like things untouched but you could likely saddle soap and oil these leather stirrups and we bet that they'd come back to life. The stirrups have old wooden spools at the top. The stirrups are also adjustable but we don't recommend you actually use this old guy!
He was well played with over the years and has wear and patina you'd expect. He has a little wisp of hair for a tail as you can see in the pictures. He has a large wooden arched (bow style) base with handles on each end. The base is a nice red color with black hand-painted lines and a faded white floral pattern on the footboard in the middle of the rocker.He has tons of character! As you can see in the pictures, he has some areas where the wood joints can be seen. Overall he shows very well and these "issues" add character and proof of age to him. As you'd expect, there are scuffs and paint loss, scrapes, scratches, nicks, dings, cracks edge wear, smudges and patina! We will do our best to answer your questions.
