ITEM: Antique Hobby Horse

CIRCA: Approximately 1920s - 1950s

DETAILS: Rolling hobby horse -- a long-forgotten children's toy. Neglected. Distressed. Derelict. Haunted with a lifetime of stories. Facial detail is in red and black. All four wheels are robins egg blue. Most of the body is white. Head lacks its dowel. Wheels are functional, wobbly and fully in tact--being held to legs by naturally-oxidized screws.

DIMENSIONS: Approximately 21" x 7.5" x 18.5"

NOTE: This item is not intended for children or play.
