Shape Design Radio or Novelty / Gadget - fancy or unusual shape.

These horse radios (in pot metal) are collectables. Abbotwares used the same basic radio in many different designs of the horses - such as: "Standing Horse", the most often seen version, while the "Rearing Horse & Cowboy" is seldom encountered. Even rare are "Prancing Horse & Cowgirl", "Lady Godiva", "Moose" and "Hula Dancer" sometimes wrongly called "Hula Girl" - it has a gyrating waiste. All these models have the chassis number Z-477. Please use the right model when uploading collector prices because they differ greatly depending on the model.
