Vintage Rocking Horses

German plush covered push along horse, circa 1920-40.

Mozart is a german made, plush covered push along horse dating approximately to the interwar period. Such horses were prolific from Germany, with plush starting to replace hide by the 1920s. Many were made for export, especially to North America.
Mozart is in good condition for his age, moderate wear to the plush covering which is otherwise intact. Original leatherette bridle, reins, martingale and saddle cloth. Original glass eyes.
The platform has cast iron wheels, a strong indicator of a pre WW2 date. (Post war production was relatively limited from factories situated in East Germany.) Very light woodworm on the base, treated! and not a significant to seriously weaken it.

Height 29"

Body Length 20"

Overall Length 27"
