Courage, Dear Heart


Out of stock

“Courage, Dear Heart”. This little sculpture is an adorable mere 9cm tall and 8cm in diameter. It features the sweetest tiny rider and horse, a toy from a game from the 1920’s. They are jumping over a cross-country jump, made from a miniature antique bone and natural bristle brush – I’m not sure of its original use, as if it were a toothbrush, I would have thought there would have been a handle, or evidence of one. The fence bars, and flag posts, are made from segments of antique hat pin stems from the early 1900’s, and the flags are miniscule fragments of vintage tins. In turn, stands on a vintage tin lid from c. 1910, on the front of which C.S. Lewis’s quote, “Courage, Dear Heart”, is stamped in to vintage tin fragments. Below this, is an antique wooden gavel, which stands on 3 tiny yellow wooden beads, originally from a 1960’s abacus.
