Antique Miniature German Brown Cream Paper Mache Horse On Wheels @ £55.00
This is a first for KT Miniatures and quite a rare item. I purchased it along with a toy stable and other animals, including another horse. I have been told that the two horses are older than the actual stable, so I have decided to sell the horses separately to the stable. So, if you are looking for something a little different to add to your miniatures collection, then this could be for you.
The previous owner believes that this is of paper mache construction. It comes in the original dappled cream/ brown painted finish, with additional painted detail. It is of German origin from the early 1900s (could even be a little older than that). It stands on a wooden platform which has four metal wheels that rotate and can be pushed along with some care. The saddle appears to be made of leather and has metal wire stirrups. Overall, this is in a relatively good played with condition, however there is some wear, including some bumps and scrapes to the painted exterior. Plus, there is a weeny crack in the outer painted layer at the top of each leg on the left side, but nothing major. However, as this is around 90 years old, I think a few wrinkles can be forgiven. The base measures 5” long x 1 ¾” deep (not including the wheels) and the horse stands at an overall height of just under 5 ½”.
