Articulated Horse Puppet

An unusual and highly decorative example of an early 20th Century horse puppet, A carved wooden head with leather detail across most of the item. Aged leather bell strapped neck collar still intact. The body is made from a hand carved section wooden box over stitched with fur. Rapped in an old linen cloth, the underpart of the puppet reveals an old wooden branch for holding the puppet upright, attached to the inside of the head is an old rope, which once pulled moves the head up and down making the bell jingle. This item is rare due to it form, unique in it decorative appeal and overall just a brilliant display item and sure talking point. The item does not come with a stand however upon request a simple metal one can be supplied if needed.
Dimensions in inches: H 17” x W 22” x D 6”
Details: This item doesn’t come with a stand, but a basic metal one can be supplied at cost.
Origin: English
Period: 1920
Condition: Aged through wear and tear is present across this item in areas, fading of all surface and loss of colour and paint in sections is present, aging to the head is obvious but only in the loss of paint and slight detail as you may except. This has been a true used puppet and not one just for show, therefore expect relevant aging and wear across it. Please view all the photos as part of this advert, before a purchase is made.
