A hand carved horse, I'm sure it was made in the trenches as it has a signature and date 1916 written in pensil on the bottom.
The bottles are also from the WWI era and were often broken by the soldiers to collect the glass ball that's inside, a present for their kids to be used as marbels. An interesting side about toys made by disabled soldiers during WWI . It's French but you can use the translater.
