RARE! Antique Victorian Folk Art Primitive Wooden Rocking Horse~Signed CONVERSE

Description: Up for auction is this very charming wooden rocking horse. It is a real piece of Americana. It was made by the Converse Toy Company out of Winchendon, Mass. They were in business from 1878 to 1934. I would estimate that this piece dates from the late 1880 to 1890 era. The horse still retains the original brass plate of the manufacturer. The base has the original decorative paint. Horse and base are made of wood. Horse is solid wood. Really a great decorative piece or for an antique doll collection or even a child's room. Please see all pics...I have taken many to show off this very nice piece.

Dimensions: Horse stands 30.5" tall to top of head. Base measures 35" X 12".

Condition: Base is in very good condition with original paint. Much of the paint is present. The horse alone is solid and without chips or cracks. Piece is sturdy and well build. Approximately 25% of horse's original paint is gone. Tail is present. Mane and cloth saddle are gone.
