Victorian Rocking Horse


Availability: In stock

This is a well carved and shaped model of antique rocking horse that has much better definition than the much later, mass produced models. Rocking on the attractive boat design as opposed to the swing/stand designs that followed later in the century. This particular base has been fitted with front and back stops to help curtail over enthusiastic children. These could be removed or lessened for thrill seekers if required. This rocking horse was not in the same condition when it was acquired by us. Bald, battered and bruised, this horse suffered at the hands of a thousand grand nationals, escaped from millions of Apaches and taken to the very brink of existence. Had it been a later, poorer model we would not have gone to the trouble of restoring it to its former glory. But the long wait and expense with our restorers was well worth the time and money. Whilst we have previously sold these beasts to window dressers and interior designers, if we were honest, this horse is ready for children to play on and start another lifetime of make believe and love.
