Lines operated from 1850-1931 initially in the busy King's Cross area of London. They became Victorian England's largest rocking horse maker, yet maintained the highest qualities of workmanship and carving. G & J stands for the founding brothers, George and Joseph Lines

"Extra carving" refers to additional detailed carving put on a horse on the neck and legs to replicate musculature and give a more realistic look to the horse. It was often an additional extra on otherwise standard horses.
