These Kay Bojesen horses first saw the light of day in the beginning of the 1930s.
With its proud stance, luxurious mane and reins at the ready, the horse invites us on an imaginary journey at a brisk gallop.
Its soft curves and stiff legs give the horse the typical expression Kay Bojesen's wooden family of animals is known for playful contours that don't try to reflect those of real animals and his imaginative variations instead, which quickly find a place in any home.
A precious gift for all memorable occasions.

Kay Bojesen is famous for his wooden figures but it is widely unknown that Kay Bojesen was in fact a silversmith. He started his career as a silversmith with Georg Jensen and has designed both jewellery, cutlery and silverware. Interest in wood was sparked after the birth of his son Otto. This inspired his fascination with children's play and most importantly wooden toys.
Kay Bojesen began experimenting with wooden materials and soon he had created a series of wooden animals that would inspire children through play. For Kay Bojesen, it was important that the animals were not very realistic in order to trigger children's imagination. For this reason, his motto was "the lines should laugh".
Kay Bojesen is considered one of Denmark's foremost designers and when he died at the age of 72, he left a big legacy behind. A legacy of design icons like the classic wood pan, zebra, puffin and the pair of doves ‘Lovebirds’.
