She has had a comprehensive restoration by Haddons Rockers some time in the 1980's, which includes repainting with their pattern dapple grey, tack and saddle. white natural horse hair mane and tail completes this restoration.
Maggie has distinctive four pin brackets, very similar to the Ayres pattern, though Ayres noramlly only used bearer plates on larger rocking horses than Maggie.
Maggie is in very good condition, being sound and in full working order. We have giving her a light restoration, removing any light scratches and so prepare her for her new stable/home.

Frederick Henry Ayres was one of the leading late Victorian toy and rocking horse manufacturers. Probably second only to Lines in output, many would regard Ayres as more classic. F H Ayres was innovative with a string of interesting patents for rocking horse designs. The firm was based at 111 Aldersgate, London from 1864 until 1940, supplying most London department stores, such as Harrods as well as being widely exported. Ayres rocking horses are undoubtably the most collectable of antique rocking horses.
