'Brigadier' 
 
F H Ayres Extra Carved Rocking Horse For Sale. £4750
 
This beautiful boy has had a previous very sympathetic restoration retaining a lot of his originality. 
 
Restored to include retaining his original paintwork & saddlery preserved, with replacement stirrups, reins & bit. His replacement saddle cloths copied exactly the same from his original, in a vintage pure wool fabric with genuine antique gold fringing the same as Ayres used back in the time.
 
He benefits replaced cow hair as he would have had back in the time & also fabric rosettes.
 
He has all his wonderful old metal Ayres rosettes in tact, which have taken on a green/blue patina.
 
His swing stand is totally original & has been wax polished & rocks true & even.
 
It is lovely to see a rocking horse with all his battle scars, crazing to the paintwork & patina that only time can bring.

Mischa

A solid replica rocking horse crafted from mahogany, Mishka has been kept in very good condition, albeit some very slight scuffing to her hooves and a thin crack that runs the width of her deck and which doesn't affect her stability at all. She also has a small movement crack to the wood near her front left shoulder / leg which is purely cosmetic and does not effect her integrity.
 
She stands approx 37.5" high to her ears.
 
Her wood gives off a rich warmth. Her saddle is fixed ( has a scuff on it please see the picture) & she has a fully removable bridle. All crafted from genuine leather.
