It was made by'Saddle Mates'. The body is aluminum and the base is a heavier iron, adding to it's weight.
The paint is chipping and faded. I do not think the paint is the original, but I simply do not know.
The paint is definitely old. Take a good look at the pictures, I have tried to get it from many angles for your consideration. I had just washed it off when i took the pictures.
It is a "rocking toy" with a rubber rocking system in the base, which is very stiff from age. There is surface rust on the base. I do not see and cracks anywhere in the body.
I think 2 smaller, lighter boxes will be better than one large overweight box. Vintage Saddle Mates Chicken Playground Riding Toy Aluminum body with heavy base.
