old rocking horse ride-on toy - maker/date/value help?

    Hi Denise, Rocking horses are notoriously difficult to evaluate even if you examine them first-hand, which is, I suppose, why nobody has been foolhardy enough to answer your question! So, I'm going to be the first fool who tries! One reason it's so difficult is that there have been so many recent reproductions of older designs. I'm going to stick my neck out here and say that yours is probably from the 1950's. It could be late '40's; it could be early '60's. It looks to be in very good condition. I can't see the mane in your photo--for value it's important that it also be in good condition. It's probably American made--if someone out there think's it's from the 1920's, then, if they're right, it could be from Germany. I don't think it's English or Mexican. Value in an ebay sale would, I think, be between $200 and $250. I'm sure that Denise & definitely I would welcome other opinions. Gary
