I love this pull toy horse possibly from the late 19th or early 20th century. A friend of my Mothers from Germany gave me this many,many years ago.
Three hooves have wheels. The hooves broke but I glued them back on.
Reins are leather and there is a oval metal plate hanging on the front under its neck , the letters that are stamped in it appear to be "H e h a", maybe this is the name of the horse or maker? It is hard to make out the exact letters.
Horse has orange glass eyes and the mane and tail appear to be real horse hair.Body is molded and is covered with brown wool felt?
I have spent many hours researching these type of pull toys and I would greatly appreciate it if somebody could tell me where exactly this was made and around what year.
