Large Lines Bros-Triang Sportiboy circa 1930
Bandit is a beautifully restored large Lines Bros Sportiboy. The restoration includes repainting, very sympathetically to the original dapple pattern. New detachable leather tack, again modelled on the original tack, includes the bridle and saddle.
Bandit has a new silver grey natural horsehair mane and tail, original glass eyes and new red rosettes.
The stand is in excellent condition and fully fit for service, the original pillars have been retained, with replacement pattern parts on the rest. The original brackets bear the Lines Bros stamp, LBLtd SP2. Also retained are the original circular Lines Bros – Triang badges, albeit worn, located either end of the stand.
The very popular Sportiboy range was made in the 1920s and 30s to standards of workmanship comparable to the parent Lines company.
Body Length 25"
Length Overall 52"
Prior to 1914 they operated five scattered workshops across London. The brackets usually have been stamped on the underside, with J&G being stamped on a slightly different model with a thicker neck to those stamped G&J.
Lines Bros was a company formed after World War 1 by the sons of George and Walter Lines, it eventually absorbed the parent company and became Triang, for a time the world's largest toy company.
