Antique French Rocking Horse, 1800's
A fabulous and extremely rare antique French rocking horse from Paris, 19th century.
This majestic rocking horse was just discovered in May of 2021 in Paris. It is a remarkable antique French toy that was a part of an ancient carousel [from French carrousel] during the 19th century. The horse is hand carved from wood and painted in black. It is mounted on a rocking frame made of metal. Through the passage of time some of the paint has flaked away creating in the process a wonderful distressed and timeworn patina that gives it an exceptional appeal. Such treasures are extremely rare these days and represent "the jewel in a crown" of interior decorating as they are highly ornamental and attractive and could form a fascinating display in a stylish and unique interior, classical or contemporary. It would look just marvellous displayed free standing on a floor or on a console table. It measures about 68 x 94 x 33 cm or approximately 26.7 x 37 x 13 inches and it is in lovely antique condition with signs of ageing that in my opinion only brings forward its true beauty and splendour today. It is exactly as I discovered it. For the full condition please refer to the images!
