Description

Armed with a long spear and bravery, this ancient trooper on a white steed bears likeness to the warriors from the cradle of Western civilisation. Immortalised in this vintage toy, the blue warrior charges into battle for the eternal glory of an empire's conquest. The figure's arms, spear and saddle rope moves as it swings, along with the horse's head and front legs.

Popular in the 19th Century, balancing toys find their origins back to old China and India where they were carved out of wood, before becoming modernised in the West and finding form in metal, in particular, tin.


Considered an educational toy from as early as the 18th century, pendulum toys showcased a light swinging movement that is both soothing yet invoking of curiosity.

This series of toys was acquired from a toy-collecting Professor in Java, and come with a 'skyhook' style pendulum on a pedestal base.

In good condition. Only one available. A rare #journeyeastvintage find.

Approximate dimensions: 26cm x 11.5cm x 48cm (LxWxH)
