19th Century Folk Hand Painted Pull Horse Toy

A rare and unique carved model figurine of a horse featuring its original paintwork raised on a wheeled base pulling an associated painted in the same medium flatbed frame cart. Dating from the 19th century, being a part of folk art, meaning it was most likely hand carved and painted by an indigenous culture. This example probably originates from Germany and would come under the title of being a 'German horse pull-toy'. A lovely decorative display piece.

In good condition with the original paintwork, over the years the paintwork has faded in places and has softened in colour, making the horse and cart less vibrant. Some of the leather composing the harness is tired due to age, this example isn't in perfect condition but is full of character and charm. Please see photos to get a better overview of this.

Pappilon is a Mother and Daughter collaboration of ideas spanning 'some' decades of new and old.  Both having a fascination with interiors and art we like to think we have a unique style and taste where we select individual pieces for their own stand-alone worth and value and like family, it is a growing family of ideas that makes us love what we do.

We feel that antiques which have withstood the test of time relate to a quality found in craftsmanship most often lost in today's modern age. This doesn't simply mean we stick with the old but the ethos of what we stand for is that even antiques for the future should have a consideration to its longevity and quality as well as its style.

We source pre-loved and sometimes tired pieces of furniture and items from many locations around the UK and in and around Europe. We lovingly restore each piece and sympathetically bring it back to life either by injecting it into the 21st century or restoring it back to its original state.
