Juliette: A Large Lines Bros Sportiboy

  • Lines Bros Sportiboy antique rocking horse
  • Lines sportiboy antique rocking horse
  • Sportiboy rocking horse brackets

Juliette is a large Lines Bros Sportiboy rocking horse, dating to circa 1930. She has been restored by Collinsons of Liverpool at some point in the past, hence the distinctive dapple and tack of Collinsons.

The paintwork and tack are typically Collinsons style, probably done in the 60s or 70s, as it is now in need of another restoration. This includes the classice Collinsons corduroy saddle, although fitted without a back rest, as the sportiboy model (Lines Bros) had a detachable saddle. Retained as part of the original Lines rocking horse is the finer carving of both horse and stand, bowler hat caps on the rocking irons and the stamped Lines Bros rocking iron brackets.

This fine antique rocking horse is being offered "as is" with the option of retained the heritage originality of two iconic rocking horse makers, or restoring sympathetically to the original Lines pattern (which would add another £1,000 to it's value.)
