About this Item

Movable figure of a black Arabian horse mounted to a hand-colored landscape backdrop that measures 10 by 8 3/4 inches (251x196mm). The horse is articulated using a series of metal pins that allow it to be manipulated into various positions. Accompanied by eight interchangeable rider figures, all of which are hand-colored. These have a tab on the reverse side that allows them to slip onto the horse. The riders consist of two women and six men. The ladies are shown riding side-saddle and wearing full period costume. Among the men are a jockey, a Prussian Hussar, an officer with a plumed hat, and several gentlemen with various costumes, riding crops and saddle styles. This very rare paper toy is virtually unknown to reference works: a single mention of it appears in the Königlich Württembergisches allgemeines Amts- und Intelligenz-Blatt for the year 1835. No maker is identified, but a small monogram appearing at the bottom of the title label on the front of the original marbled paper slipcase shows the initials "JMB." Some trivial rubbing to slipcase, minor creases to background sheet, else fine. Bookseller Inventory # 26768
