The horse is in really magnificent condition, the paint is vibrant and 99.5% intact. There are a couple nick and scuffs - a little on the ear tips you can see in the picture. Overall there is great detail paint - notice the gold painted horseshoes and added touches around the hooves. The actual horse measures approximately 46" inches in length, 8" inches wide and 14 1/2 inches in height. The horse on the oak base measures 49" inches in length, 18 3/4" inches wide and 18 3/4 inches in height.
This piece weighs 61 pounds. Was told this is roughly 30 to 40 years old and the artist made 4 other pieces like this.
Everyone that has seen this piece comments about what high quality and detail this horse has. A wonderful piece for your little one during this Holiday season.
Please review all my pictures because they show greater detail and are considered as part of the description. I strive to find unique and difficult to find pieces that I believe will capture the attention of collectors.I spend a great deal of time traveling, talking with people, sitting at auctions and waiting in line at estate sales to find these pieces. Some of the items are "farm fresh" and some I have had in my possession for years and time to let others enjoy. If I can find out, I will. These are antiques so expect them not to be "perfect". Items: I do not clean most items for fear of harm. I will do my best to help you. If you want faster service, please contact me to receive a quote. I do pack carefully, I do not want them to arrive broken.
