Miniature Rocking Horse
This adorable little rocking horse must have been for a very small toddler or possibly a sample, as it measures just 33" long by 11" wide from tip to tip on the runners; and the horse itself measures just 19" long by 5 1/2" wide with a saddle height of just 16 3/4". He is in very good condition considering use and age. He has his original trappings that consist of a leather bridle and reigns, a leather saddle over a felt pad, with original irons. He is made of a carved wood base that is covered in excelsior which is covered in felt. He has glass eyes, real horse hair mane and tail and leather ears. All of this sits on top of wooden runners that still retain their original paint decoration. This is the smallest example I have ever seen. A real collectors piece! A few imperfections due to age and use.
