I have classified this pony as a "USED"- 'Black box' edition with 'Black' Tag. This is a 'Resin Pony'.
"Happy Trails" is in "Very Good Condition" condition. Tag, styrofoam insert & packaging are all in "very good" condition. B/Box is showing 'regular storage wear'.- please see 'all photos'.
I purchased this pony from a 'deceased estate' & have had it stored for some time along with a few other 'Black box' edition ponies. I have no knowledge of its display time or if it ever was.
Artist - "Nevena Christi"
Story behind piece- 'Happy Trails' is so much more than the wonderful song sung by Hollywood cowboy and television legend Roy Rogers in his famous Western films from the 1940s and '50s. Happy Trails is a wistful way of wishing people well as they travel life's trails. "Happy trails to you, until we meet again. Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then. Who cares about the clouds when we're together? Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather. Happy trails to you, 'til we meet again." Life is a journey, enjoy the ride with Happy Trails!
This 'Painted Pony' reflects the style and costumes worn by Gene Autry and Roy Rogers in old Hollywood westerns -- '30s and '40s cowboy retro, in other words -was the initial dream of this fine artist and former fashion designer. To give it an edge, she also wanted the horse to look like it was made of tooled leather, with a vintage saddle cinched on its back. 'Nevena' now lives in El Paso and runs Rocketbuster Boot Company, where some of the wildest cowboy boots you will ever see are handmade.!
This is a great B/Box 1st edition for any 'Trails" collector.

"POSTAGE" is quoted via "Ebay's Australia Post's" postage calculator- (Based on a "Standard box size, weight & Buyers postal destination"). Alternatively please email your postcode & I am happy to provide an exact postage quote for you.
Happy to combine postage on purchases as it does save money. (Please email postcode for quote).

Items will be double-boxed & packaged for postage safety.
# "AUSTRALIA POST" does not provide a "Fragile Service". "PARCEL POST with 'Tracking & Signature" is used as it provides a 'tracking number, a signature confirmation on delivery & $100 insurance'. (Items sold above this limit, I am happy insure to the "Purchased price" at my expense)
# "SIGNATURE on DELIVERY attracts a $2.95 charge extra on top of the 'Postage price' that 'you see' on your box & a 'Signature Required' sticker is attached to 'BUYERS PARCEL'. This charge is added & recorded when posted at the Post office- (on Seller's payment receipt only when lodged).

I 'do not' charge for "Packaging"-(box,bubble wrap,satchels,foam beads,tape) or "Handling"-(I am located 40kms from my Post office/80km round trip to post items purchased) & I 'do try' to "Refund" the BUYER the 'postage price difference' if their cost is found cheaper when posted.
