$1250 Mangleboard #MBS109
Bottle brush mane
Length 24 1/2"
Height 8" to top of brushy mane
Swedish c.1850 in original garnet paint with white outlining and blaze on horse. If you look closely at this photo...
you can see that a brush which was used to clean glass lamp chimneys was inserted to serve as a nice bushy mane.
This horse originally had leather ears and no doubt a brushy tail as well.
The head is exquisitely carved and very noble.
