I am trying to determine when this drawing of a horse was made (I'm pretty sure it was before 1900.) Do any of you experts see any details in the saddle that would point to a certain time period?
Thanks for the replies. A carousel horse is a good thought.
The text under the horse is just the name of the girl who drew it, in Fraktur lettering. The top 3 candidates I've found with that name would've been around age 16 in the years 1840, 1870, and 1900. The spelling of her name "Eliesabeth", and presence of a "ä" in her last name suggest to me an earlier date.
