IN EXCELLENT MINTY CONDITION!!!
A nice Pre-WWII souvenir toy metal race horse & jockey dating from circa 1920's-30's. It was found in a box of vintage travel souvenirs that I am currently listing. They were all antique & stored in same box for many decades. This toy horse leads me to suspect it was purchased as a travel souvenir while visiting the Kentucky Derby, based on other items it was found with. Everything was from pre-WWII & mostly 20's-30's. Some earlier. The handsome all hand-painted high quality horse & rider figurine measures 3 1/4" (inches) long X 2 1/2" tall. Only marking I see is MADE USA. Possibly made by the All Nu company? Needs more research. Does not attract to magnet. The jockey has a hand painted number 4 on his back. Not a common to find piece! . Surfaces all original & excellent....offering all original as-found. Everything all original with no repairs or touch ups. I would rank this as Nearly Mint condition with only some very light minor rubbing or wear to some high points on the horses right rear hip area. The photos make things look worse than they really are. When held in hand this piece looks about mint.
Leaving as-found with all original patina & surfaces. Please see photos for exact condition.
Very scarce historic hard-to-find piece!!!
I have more fine vintage porcelain, glassware, & antique cut glass listed!
