Hearts and kisses on this handsome and romantic board.
This handsome horse has a very attentive expression, pert expressive ears and beautiful eyes and is wearing both a noseband and part of a harness. The tail is nicely carved as well and there are beautiful stars on each shoulder. The horse head also has a very nice forelock, which I do not think I have seen before on a carved horse.
No date, but definitely early 1800's because of the fineness of the decoration. Initials are JMR and ?PD. Groom and bride perhaps?
