CHILD'S ANTIQUE RIDING TOY - SULKY HORSE AND CARRIAGE
This horse drawn sulky (a carriage form used in harness racing) is set in motion when the rider pedals placing the feet into the elongated stirrup forms; this drives the wheels. Originally intended as a child's toy, collectors appreciate the folk art profile of this sculptural form and display it rather than ride it. Possible manufacturer is Bauer & Krause.The horse no longer has a tail or mane, and has small areas where some wood chipped off. Old black repaint to horse, ironwork is original red paint.
