"Elgar"
Contemporary rocking horse by Whittingham Crafts

Elgar is a large horse, in GRP, but made and finished to very high standards by Whittingham Crafts circa 1980-90. Although the horse itself is made in GRP, the finish and quality of materials is exceptional. The horse itself is certainly  impressive and a quality mould. The stand, of slightly unusual design,  is  made from proprietary parts, such as nylon bearers on the "irons", which are solid brass.
The horse is very durable and well made, in need of some light restoration, which can be considered in his price, currently listed "as is".
The white mane and tail are in natural horse hair, though of good quality.
Elgar himself was retailed through Harrods, an indication of the market he was made for.

Whittingham Crafts appear to have made these fine horses in the 1980's. I know very little about this business, but from the quality of materials used and finish obtained, they must have specialised in quality craft  goods. I would assume they catered for the North American market, as very few seem to show up here in the UK.

To purchase or find out more about this horse, please contact Sally, either by email or phone on the links on the footer, or better still, visit our showroom in the scenic Shropshire Hills, we would be delighted to see you.
