702229 Antique Horse or Donkey Wood & Compo Late 1800s Rough
This early gray horse or donkey is probably part of a Christmas Creshe setting or large Noah's Arc, or is maybe just a toy. It is very well made with some type of molded composition and wood legs. It has a nice deep gray finish with dapple gray on the back and a black mane. The tail was made with a twisted rope fabric painted over gray. One leg is broken and the nose has a chip-out. The position of the ears is what makes it look a bit like a donkey. It still stands nicely and would be a nice addition to an animal collection whether a farm, an Arc or Creshe scene.

702221 Celluloid Indian Rhino 2" x 4" Viscoloid Co
This is a 2" by 4" Indian rhino made by Viscoloid Company in Leominster, Massachusetts, around 1915 or so. This has wonderful detail with accurate and realistic features. The animal has their Made in USA mark, one of 4 marks for that company shown on page 268 in the book Celluloid by Lauer & Robinson. This is the 2" size measuring from head to hoof and is one of 2 different sizes shown on page 192 in that book. The condition is very good for the age. There is a small crack on one leg but is still fairly stable and does not affect the animal's ability to stand.
