RARE! Antique Victorian Folk Art Primitive Wooden Rocking Horse~Signed CONVERSE
RARE! Antique Victorian Folk Art Primitive Wooden Rocking Horse~Signed Up for sale is this very charming wooden rocking horse. It is a real piece of Americana. It was made by the Converse Toy Company out of Winchendon, Mass. They were in business from 1878 to 1934. I would estimate that this piece dates from the late 1880 to 1890 era. The horse still retains the original brass plate of the manufacturer. The base has the original decorative paint. Horse and base are made of wood. Horse is solid wood. Really a great decorative piece or for an antique doll collection or even a child's room. Please see all pics...I have taken many to show off this very nice piece.
Dimensions: Horse stands 30.5" tall to top of head. Base measures 35" X 12".
Condition: Base is in very good condition with original paint. Much of the paint is present. The horse alone is solid and without chips or cracks. Piece is sturdy and well build. Approximately 25% of horse's original paint is gone. Tail is present. Mane and cloth saddle are gone.
Shipping: Due to the size and fragile nature of this piece we will need to ship the horse and base separately. This requires an estimation on our end since the shipping calculator will only work for one box. If the actual shipping costs are less we will refund you the difference. Please keep in mind that this is a large heavy piece.Sorry but due to the fragile nature and size of the boxes on this item we can only within the US and Canada.
