Description

Across a great wilderness, co-existing as one with Nature, the popular character of the Native American warrior continues to live on through modernity. Proudly adorned in an eagle-feather war bonnet, he sits on a white steed atop a patterned saddle blanket. The figure's arms, bow,  and saddle rope move as the toy 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 11cm x 48cm (LxWxH)
