A gorgeous Victorian pull along horse with original leather tack and brush tail. The horse is dapple grey and sits on a wood base that's a lovely deep green with original wheels and hardware. Light distress to the piece throughout as pictured, giving it a beautiful patina and well-loved charm. Overall a solid piece with no structural issues. A wonderful decorative piece for any space.
