Despite being over a hundred years old, Mullins still has a great deal of originality, but
would benefit from some light restoration. He is sound and able to be ridden as he is.
Condition wise he has one chipped ear, glass eyes, a natural horse hair mane and tail
and some original tack. The pommel holes are indicative of a pre 1914 date.
Body Length 25"
Overall length 50"

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.
