This special piece probably dates to the 1920s or 30s. (see history of Jennings Brothers below). This spectacular horse is in EXCELLENT CONDITION. I rarely use the word mint, but I cannot find a flaw on this rare beauty. This wonderful piece measures about 5 1/4" high and 7 1/2" long. It is embossed J.B. underneath.
Don't miss your opportunity to add this gorgeous horse to your collection.
