Beautiful restoration of a genuine F H Ayres rocking horse, all complete and in full working order. Completely repainted, new quality
leather tack, new "drizzle" (chestnut-grey) natural horse hair mane and tail.
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.
