Rare and Early Georgian period Toy horses rocking horse antique toy collector
December 1, 2019
Set of Rare and Early Georgian Period Toy horses x 4 – suit rocking horse / antique toy collector display. Thought to be from the Georgian period and very possibly of solid body construction as per the Georgian rocking horses of this time. Wood & gesso with a gorgeous deep yellow patina to the shellac on all 4 of them. I just love the naiveness & simplicity these beautiful toys present. Dear little faces & outstretched legs typical of the period. They possibly could have started life on a platform as there is evidence of little stubs under some of the hooves. They are in overall good condition considering their age – albeit one or two slightly loose muscle blocks to inside under chest & some missing gesso & paint / loose harness in areas (can be reattached with care). Two of the horses come plain & two come harnessed – please see photos for their condition & the attention to detail on the harness which I find incredible. Each of the 4 horses is approx 14″ long by 10″ high. These are the only examples of toy horses in this Georgian style I have experienced or seen – after widely searching the web for similar & finding none. They are looking for an appreciative home to a new owner who appreciates their simplicity & English toy history. Collection in person also welcome.
