From the Cresp family in Grasse, this large white-painted wooden horse in a rearing position, has a cast-iron structure and three wooden wheels circled with iron. The front wheel, which can be turned, has a toe clip. The horse moves when the child turns two handles mounted on either side of the horse's head.
