  • Details
    Here we have a fabulous solid brass shire horse and carriage.

    This fabulous shire horse stands 17cm tall to the tips of his ears 24cm long, 7.5cm wide and weighs a whopping 2.5kg a proper heavy horse.
    He portrayed just starting to walk off with his front left leg raised his other three hooves firmly flat on the ground. He is adorned with his harness and his tail is raised. and his ears pricked. He has a beautiful shaping and his strong muscular body is clearly defined.

    The carriage or trap is 36cm long in total and 14cm tall standing level. The wheels are 10.5cm diameter and are free wheeling held on to the axle with the original brass pins and brass washers. The carriage weight is a whopping 3.4kg. The carriage rests on the shire horse back with a brass chain and the total length of horse and carriage is a massive 48cm and a total weight of 6kg. The carriage would be ideal as a planter and has a depth of 7cm.

    These are very collectable and a horse & carriage of this size and weight are quite rare, usually being hollow or smaller. He would make a fabulous centre piece of any brass collection or as a decorative piece for a traditional pub or canal restaurant, or on a narrow boat or barge. A great door stop or a stage prop for a drama.
