A child’s horse. A round barrel for a body, fire hose and swing pedals for stirrups, ropes and pulleys for reins, carriage wheels for hooves, a mop-head for a tail. This girl has got it all. Colored in yellow wash.
Circa 1950 or before. From the mid-west. Perhaps the most extraordinary horse of them all. From a time when Americans made their own children’s toys. The best piece of “folk art/American primitive” we’ve seen in a very long time.
