Pull along toy horse

Toy horse, pull along, skewbald, skin-covered, wood/leather/[calf skin]/ [cow's tail hair], metal [Germany], 1870-1930 The horse is featured in a walking position placed on a moulded timber platform which is inset with four, cast-iron spoked wheels. The body is covered in brown and white animal skin, probably calf hide, with a white mane and brown tail, both probably made of cow's tail hair. Stitching on the inside legs shows where the hide was joined. The horse has a realistically shaped head with glass eyes and painted timber features including teeth, black hoofs and a muzzle with flaring red nostrils. The horse is fitted with a leather bridle with white brow band and rosette and metal buckles and bit. The brown leather saddle has adjustable stirrup leathers and metal stirrups and is placed on top of a red saddle cloth. Probably missing is a handle which would have been attached to the front of the platform so the horse could be pulled along.

  • Help the British Library tag a million images

    Some of the million images the British Library have released on Flickr Commons have been added here for you to play with. The tags you add will help people find these historic images.

    They have asked people to use these special tags where appropriate: 'map', 'letter'+theletter e.g. LetterA, 'architecture', 'decoration', 'landscape', 'music', 'portrait', 'fashion'. If the image needs rotating, add 'rotatec' or 'rotatecounterc'.
