    George Washington on Horseback Candy Container This piece stands a full 11" tall. The porcelain-faced Washington, complete, is in Colonial uniform with sword and hat. The dapple grey horse, which replicates the horse Washington rode at Valley Forge, is missing his mane and bridle. The head can be removed to retrieve the candy filling, which we are sure is why the original bridle is virtually gone. The harness and saddle gear are intact. The horse's tail is short, but attached. Although there is no maker's mark on this piece, the material and glass eyes certainly date this piece to around the turn of the century. This type of container is exceptionally hard to find in such complete condition, certainly worthy of any collectible display.
