Lollipop is a beautiful G&J Lines rocking horse, dating circa 1900-14. In his long life so far, he seems to have had at least one restoration and is currently undergoing another one. At the moment his stand is being renovated, this is mostly original, but a previous restorer replaced the cross pieces with boards from an old cupboard or drawer, so he is currently getting replacement pieces matching the originals.

The replacement tack is in good condition and is going to be retained, as is his lovely silver grey natural horse hair mane and tail.

At the moment he is available "as is", with the stand renovated, at the a discount price of £1,250.

On completion of a full restoration, Lollipop is going to be a stunning large Lines worth in the region of £2,750.

G&J Lines operated from 1850-1931 initially in the busy King's Cross area of London. They became Victorian England's largest rocking horse maker, yet maintained the highest qualities of workmanship and carving. G&J stands for the founding brothers, George and Joseph Lines
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.
