Horse Pull Toy

     This is a pull toy (with string missing) of a horse. It is constructed from wood and papier mache. The reins and harness are painted on. Notice in the image below, right that the front leg has a spot where the papier mache has broken off, revealing the wooden constructon underneath.


     In the detail of the head, shown below, notice the novel way that the ears were represented. There used to be a 'mane' of hair on the head and a tail, but over the years they wore off, or disintegrated.
