This curio has come into Braintree Antiques Centre and is currently guarding the stiars on the upper floor where we sell retro, repro and antique furniture.
We know a lot about antiques here, specially toys, however we have not been able to identify what this is or why it was produced. We are working on the assumption its a childs toy due to the size, but we are only guessing. If you have seen one of these before please email and let us know at email@example.com
What we do know is..
- Its made of animal skin, possibly leather, over a wooden horse frame.
- The condition of the leather indicates a Georgian or mid Victorian production date
- Its a horse. Or its meant to be at any rate
- It scares children
