Rosie is a Collinsons rocking horse that had a restoration some time ago, possibly by Haddons. This rocking horse is therefore in good condition, with the restoration changing the original Collinsons dapple to a more modern style. This restoration has involved removal of the saddle rest and fitting a detachable leather saddle. The fixed Collinson leatherette bridle and reins have been replaced with quality leather items, all in excellent condition. A black mane and tail are in natural horse hair, as opposed to the original cow hair used by Collinsons. We believe this restoration was completed about 30 years ago, with only very light wear to the paintwork since, the horse itself possibly dates to the 1960s.

Collinsons of Liverpool is a famous rocking horse making family going back as far as 1836. They are especially collectable today from their postwar output, producing cheaper horses in the increasingly mass produced markets emerging. At this period their designs are quite distinctive with rectangular pillars, diamond shaped pillar covers, brass pin eyes, cordouroy saddles and a distinctive paint design. Medium and larger horses seem to have used rocking iron brackets from what must have been an enormous stock of Lines brackets.
Production tailed off in the 1980s, with the firm ceasing trading after five generations in the same family in 1992.
