Hand carved solid mahogany "rocking colt" by artisan Melissa Laurence. This artist was chosen to carve a rocking horse ornament for the Clinton White House Christmas tree, and this piece has brass signature panel attached. This collectible rocking horse was purchased at the Rhinebeck, NY art and crafts fair about 15-20 years ago. The artist has retired from carving and there is only one remaining similar rocking horse on her website, priced at $1400. See the link below to her site, and her photo is pretty similar to what I have, including hand painted and gold leaf details. This is a collectible item that will make a perfect holiday gift for kids or grandchildren and will become a family heirloom. Serious inquiries only. Cash or cashier's check only please.
