Antique Rocking Horses
Clara
Thuringian Toy Company circa 1920
Violet is a small Collinsons rocking horse, probably dating to circa the 60s. There has been some restoration, notably replacing the earlier Collinsons saddle and tack with leather tack. However the stand, paintwork and  the original cow hair mane and tail all appear to be original and in very good condition for age.
Overall the condition and extent of originality result in rather attractive little rocking horse, with lots of character and in full working order. The replacement tack being harder wearing and of better quality than the orginal make this horse suitable for continued use by children, an ideal family  heirloom.

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.
