This wonderfully weathered, beautifully spare old horse looks like it has been around forever, and the single rusty front wheel and large pair of red wheels at rear--called gong bell wheels, as they house a bell that chimes between them as they roll--look pretty ancient too! I believe most likely the horse was once covered in lithographed paper, and it looks like there was once a cord that threaded through a hole at front (like nostrils) to pull him along. The wheels still roll smoothly and the bell still rings as they do, so it could definitely be put into action again, though also nice just holding down a shelf.
17" long x 8 3/4" tall x 4 7/8" wide. Horse itself measures 9 1/2" long and 7/8" thick. Beautiful warm dry wood patina to the horse. Structural very sound and sturdy.
