A crisply carved, expressive Carved Wooden (half) Horse Head in its original painted surface, dating c. 1900 or perhaps a bit earlier. This horse has character! Not sure if it was a wall mounting from a carousel or if it was meant to stand alone; there is a notch at the bottom of the neck leading me to suspect that it fit into something. The back side is flat and as weathered as the front side. Original painted surface (the green on the bridal is great!). The detail in the carving is amazing and. You can almost feel the fire in his/her eyes, not to mention the bite of the teeth. The horse head itself is 17” high and 12” wide; on the custom metal stand (included) it is 20 ½” tall. Very fine condition with only some minor bumping/rubbing on the deeply carved mane and face; the nostril/mouth is separate from the rest of the head and I do not know if it was carved that way or if it split and was re-attached.Domestic: Flat-rate of $45.00 to anywhere within the contiguous U.S.International: Foreign shipping rates are determined by destination.Combined shipping: Please ask about combined shipping for multiple lots before bidding.Location: This item ships from Pennsylvania
