Vtg Hand Carved Wood Primitive 52 Giraffe Rocking Horse Folk Art Leather Ears
This is a large, vintage, hand carved wooden giraffe rocking horse. The body is made from a large rough hewn block of wood measuring 5.75 inches wide by 22 inches long. The face is beautifully carved and has leather ears that are affixed with pegs. The majority of the piece is contructed with wooden pegs and some small steel spikes. It is marked with a "BR" on the left leg, which could be either the artist's signature, or perhaps, the initials of the child for whom this piece was made.
This is a piece of functional folk art and a very unique decorating piece and we have never seen anything like it. It is very sturdy and heavy. The rocking glides allow for smooth movement.
There are a few, expected nicks to the wood and there is a surface crack in the wood which has been filled. It measures 44.5" in length, 16" wide, and stands 52" tall to the head and 25" to the seat.
