Vintage horses

Rocking horses have always been a wonderful part of childhood. The wooden ones in particular have the most lovely vintage feel and costs more as they mainly European in origin while most of the ones available today are made of plastic. While I was growing up, I remember having cane rocking horse that was made in China. It had a very kitsch Chinese country feel to it. And only recently, I fell for a wooden vintage pony painted with lovely yellow flowers. Though it wasn't a rocking horse, it was quaint and eclectic. I almost didn't see it amidst a pile of flea market clutter but I am glad I did just as I was about to leave.
