Vintage horse on wheels is a ceramic, museum copy of an ancient Greek pottery piece. It comes from the geometric period (1050–900 BC).It is an ancient, ceramic toy horse copy, a museum copy, made in the early nineties.It is made of earthenware clay and it is entirely had built.
It is a strict and simple form of a horse, mounted on wheels.The entire piece is glazed with black slip, which is black liquid clay and oxides.This gives it a very natural look, but does not make it waterproof entirely.
The toy horse carries two large jugs on its back with lovely, decorated handles and rims.
Other than black, the horse is also painted in an off white, creamy colour and various spots, just so to lighten the black colour of the piece, for balance and harmony.There is an off white/creamy triangle painted on the horses chest, a little off white on its ears and tail, on the jugs rims and handles, at the outer edge of the wheels, etc.The wheels and horses legs are pierced and run on wooden skewers, wooden sticks.

This is quite a large piece, it was used also as a toy by children in the geometric period in Ancient Greece and later on.It measures about 25cm in length x 15 cm in height x 22 cm in width ( 9.84 '' x 5.90 '' x 8.66).It is not very heavy.

This is a magnificent, hand made sculpture. A gorgeous museum copy of an ancient Greek pottery piece of the geometric period.It is in very good, unused condition.It rolls on the wheels with a little effort.It's best if you use it for decor only, not as a toy.

This is not a toy for children.

It's got some wear and tear marks made by the artist, who made the copy from the museum original, so that it would look old, just like the original.
