I often saw shire horses and carts at car boot sales and in charity shops when we were allowed to go there!
I've always just dismissed them as ceramic ornaments but after seeing this boxed version I realise now that they could be classed as toys. Vintage toys at that.
We had a horse and cart at my parent's house, on a sideboard, near the wine bottle souvenir from Portugal. For all I know it could have been plastic and not ceramic at all.
Did you have a horse at home?
