This is a very nice hard-to-find antique wooden rocking horse. Appears to be hand carved and nicely hand painted wood. It looks to have been a pull toy with cast iron wheels (still turn) that was made into a rocking horse. The leather saddle is in good condition with no missing stitching and both sides have stirrups. Horse has striking red glass eyes (that photographed brown in one of the pics).
If you display the horse with the head to the right as in the first photo, there are NO flaws! If you turn the horse with the head on the left it is missing the handle and there's a crack across the front leg of the horse. Please study all pictures for exact item you will receive. The tail hair appears to be real horse hair (stiff). It has been a decoration in my home for the last 15 years.
