This is a truly special piece-- a painted zinc hobby horse found in Northern France. The horse has a cast iron frame with foot pedals as stirrups. The body of the horse is crafted in zinc and has been painted, which has patinated with age to a rich creamy taupe color. There appear to be small remnants of color, but it is unclear if the piece was ever painted over.
Measures 27" L x 14" W x 28.5" H. Patination, wear and surface debris are present as well as losses to the painted finish and minor rust. Piece is stabile and stands on its own.
