Rare Vintage Hungry Horse Figurine
RARE VINTAGE " HUNGRY HORSE " FIGURINE. Bottom is stamped: ULTIRROOS INC (I think). In my research, I found this information, but don't know how accurate it is. These were made by MPI Multi Products Inc, in the late 1940's/early 50's. It's a Syroco wood/resin figure of a "hungry horse" and came in a 4" size and 8". Ound a "Hungry Horse Dam" Travel Decal for Montana; Same horse; and a Hungry Horse Dam Newspaper Glacier National Park; same horse. The town of Hungry Horse was indeed named after two draft horses used for logging the area when they wandered off during the severe winter of 1900. The horses, Tex and Jerry, were found a month later, all scraggly and hungry but very much alive. As visitors today drive through Hungry Horse on their way to and from Glacier National Park, there are statuesque reminders of the hungry horses. Received this information from another eBayer. Hi there, Just wanted to share another version of the history of your "Hungry Horse". The story is told that in the early days an old nag would be led to and fro across the high sand dunes along Nag's Head, NC with a lantern hung around his neck. All shops say they are a rare find and bought immediately if they were lucky enough to have one. My grandparent's once lived in the area and had one like this sitting on their shelf when I was growing up as a child, A wonderful memory!
They almost always have the lantern missing so you have a treasure. Thanks for listening to this hopefully helpful info!
I'm always interested in the history of the things I also sell. Prices at the Post Office have gone up! 4.75" tall x 5" long. Condition: Named on the bottom, but I cannot locate the exact company.
N eeds a slight cleaning/dusting. There's some little round spots all over the figurine--looks possibly like paint--hopefully it can be cleaned off. Any defects not mentioned but visible in the pictures will be considered as "described". PLEASE let me know if you need to get it sooner. Doing that is against U.
