set of 4 wooden horse and jockeys
Ratings & Reviews
I had been wanting these jockey/horse carvings for years and kept waiting for them to go on sale. When they didn't, I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy them. I only wish there had been a review to refer to before I spent the money on them. For others on the fence, I will say, these are VERY rustic and primitive looking. The carving is rough....not at all detailed. The painting on them looks like it was done by a small child. They are made to look scuffed and old as they are reproductions from a vintage game, but the quality is just not equal to the price. I will add here that they are pretty large pieces, so maybe the price is related to that. I have these on top of a large bookcase which makes them only visible from a distance so I'm keeping them, however, had they been meant for an area where you could see them in detail, I would have returned them. Bottom line...if you are looking for primitives or putting them in an area where there is other weathered, rustic folk art, these will be perfect. If you want something that looks vintage, but has good "bones," these will probably not be a good fit for you. I would have been happy with this purchase if I had paid a third of the price!
