LATE 19TH CENTURY ENGLISH FOLK ART CARVED WOODEN HORSE WITH TAIL 1893 & LETTER. DATING TO THE LATE 19TH CENTURY AND CARVED FROM SECTIONS OF WOOD, THIS IS A VERY FINE ANTIQUE EXAMPLE OF A BAY HORSE MEASURING 51CM HIGH TO THE TOP OF THE EARS AND 59CM LONG, THE PATINATED ORIGINAL WOODEN BASE MEASURES 48.5CM LONG AND IS 19CM WIDE.

THE QUALITY OF THE CARVING SUGGESTS THIS WAS NOT MADE AS A TOY AND THERE ARE NO INDICATIONS TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE BASE THAT WHEELS WERE ATTACHED IN THE PAST. POSSIBLY ORIGINALLY MADE FOR THE INTERIOR OF A PUBLIC HOUSE, THE CARVER HAS CAPTURED THE MUSCULAR STRUCTURE OF THE HORSE SUPERBLY AS I HOPE THE PHOTOGRAPHS SHOW. TO THE BACK THE TAIL WHICH IS ORIGINAL IS MADE FROM HORSE HAIR. THE EYES AND HOOVES ARE PAINTED IN AND THERE ARE SUGGESTIONS THAT THE HORSE WAS REPAINTED IN THE PAST, POSSIBLY IN 1980 WHEN THE LETTER ATTACHED WAS WRITTEN. WITH MARKS AND MINOR LOSSES YOU WOULD EXPECT WITH AN EXAMPLE OF THIS AGE THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE A TRUE REFLECTION OF THE CONDITION AND SHOWS THE QUALITY OF THE CRAFTSMANSHIP.

INCLUDED IS A LETTER WHICH WAS ATTACHED TO THE BASE FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNERS DAUGHTER WITH INFORMATION ABOUT THE OWNER AND THE HISTORY OF THE HORSE WHICH SHE BELIEVES DATES TO THE 1890'S.
