A large 19th Century Persian polychrome painted rocking horse on wheels

Without doubt, one of the most beautiful examples of its type that we have seen. This absolutely charming 19th Century (or earlier) horse on wheels is simply magnificent. Substantial size.

Carved solid wood. Beautifully painted polychrome body. The saddle has ornate brass stirrups and real leopard fur trim.

This special piece stands on a solid wooden board with wooden wheels (this is decorative and is not meant to be pulled along on its wheels).

An exceptional piece that won’t come again. Don’t hesitate!

Condition: Where there are specific points to note we will detail these as far as possible but please be aware that all our items have wear commensurate with age and are as seen in the photographs. If you require any specific information please do not hesitate to get in contact. Please note the age of the piece has resulted in a split to the wood which is completely stable and does not go through the piece, as seen. The horse is extremely heavy and very robust!
