SUBJECT: This striking, windswept vintage horse statue, circa 1950s or 1960s, is hand signed on the bottom of his right rear hoof with Japanese characters and a possible date of manufacture (though it could look like a price, too), but he's otherwise not labeled. I call him "Big Matty Bay" because of his mostly matte finish. He displays the glossy hand painted eyes and "trident" style of white star so commonly seen on Japanese ceramic horses of 1950s, 1960s vintage.

Check out http://www.etsy.com/listing/95908464 to see my little Matty Bay, the same horse in half-pint size, with a slight variation of the tail.

ITEM DETAILS: This 1950s or 1960s vintage horse figurine measures 7 inches long by 6 inches tall. He's in excellent condition, entirely free of cracks, chips or crazing.

SHIPPING & HANDLING: Three-dimensional objects are always well-protected with bubble wrap and shipped in secure packaging within two business days of payment.

VINTAGE: All vintage and antique items have unique histories and are offered for sale in exactly the condition they were found. They are sold “AS IS.”
