Description:
horse standing, legs apart, looking straight ahead, faded white spotting over entire body, white mark on head and white socks; missing original tail and ears

Label Text:
This very fine toy horse has lost its ears and tail, as well as its wheels. It still bears traces of its original paint, which suggests the horse was dappled and had white stockings. It was made by a farmer in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, and was found in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
