Fern is a delightful little Ayres rocking horse that has been sympathetically restored. The paintwork is original, with touching up and re-lacquered. The tack is also sympathetic replacement, with a leather fixed saddle and flaps, blue saddle cloth with gold trim and adjustable stirrup leathers. The bridle and reins, also in matching leather are fixed.
The stand is a replacement to the original design and is in full working order, with Ayres pattern iron brackets. The style and pattern of this rocking horse is typical of an Ayres rocking horse produced during the 1920s and 1930s.

Frederick Henry Ayres was one of the leading late Victorian toy and rocking horse manufacturers. Probably second only to Lines in output, many would regard Ayres as more classic. F H Ayres was innovative with a string of interesting patents for rocking horse designs. The firm was based at 111 Aldersgate, London from 1864 until 1940, supplying most London department stores, such as Harrods as well as being widely exported. Ayres rocking horses are undoubtably the most collectable of antique rocking horses.
