Gilda is simply a stunning sympathetically restored extra carved rocking horse by G and J Lines

Lines rocking horses were an old established firm of rocking horse makers in Victorian London. Started by brothers George and Joseph Lines, it eventually had a network of workshops making rocking horses and toys in London.
Post great war, it declined, eventually absorbed by the proprietor's sons, Lines Brothers, in the 1930s, with another offshoot being Swallow Toys.
