Vintage Race Horse Carnival Game, Folk Art Plywood Painting, Racing Yellow Horse, Jockey Fair Toy, #2

Product details
This beautiful vintage racehorse and jockey are made of plywood, wood, screws and painted with bright colors. This piece appears to have been part of a handmade carnival horse racing game. (We have a matching red horse available as well). I am guessing it was made in the 1950s or earlier, but it was an estate find and is not dated. This horse stands about 23" tall and 21" across the widest point. This piece has a wonderful graphic primitive quality and the surface shows pencil marks and various wavy paint strokes. The stand is wobbly and was made of wood, dowels and screws and could benefit from repairs. This bold piece of carnival folk art is in vintage condition with dirt, wear and damage. This horse looks great up on a mantel or bookshelf and would be perfect hung on a wall behind a bar.
