Hi Customer, Thank you for the photos I do have all the photos now. I appreciate your patience and help on the photos and measurements. This is a folk art horse, hand carved out of wood and then layered thinly with a type of plaster. You can see this in the tail especially where it has chipped. Once dried it was painted and it looks to be the original paint still on this horse. The age is 1920-1930s and it would have stood on the porch or in social room for decoration.. At 20" tall x 24" long the value would be $350-400.00 in today's market or for insurance purposes the value would be $500.00
