Product Description

A superb ride on horse…

Dating to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s, this is an original ‘toy’ horse made by Mastercraft of Scotland. Originally made in 1949, the horse would have originally been painted with accessories. This particular piece has been stripped of its paint, leaving it with a sharp and industrial look, which for us looks ace! The mechanics of this piece were designed so that a child would sit on the horse, shuffle their bottom forward which would intern allow the wheels underneath to move the front legs with them. Emulating that of a jockey on a horse, the motion formed by the child would allow one to move across a room. Imagine how fun this was many years ago…

It’s a rare and charming piece. For display purposes in one’s home, it would look superb given that is a good size for a ‘toy’. This piece would also look ace on display in a shop window or a retail environment

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the horse is good and solid and perfectly ‘free stands’ on its four wheels. There are some surface scars and abrasions across, some tatty areas and some imperfections, yet we feel this simply shows the age and authenticity of this piece. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
