102a: An Ancient Syrian Terracotta Toy Cart And Horse
Syria, ca. 1000 to 800 BC. Delightful child's toy in the form of a covered cart and horse - each with original four wheels. Wheels once applied using wooden dowels which have been lost to age. Entire unit measures 9"L x 4-1/2"H.
Provenance: Ex-private German Collection acquired at auction.
In remarkable condition for its age and fragility. Ancient firing crack to one side and roughness to wheels, else near-choice.
