Neddy Brown is a stunning large extra carved rocking horse by G and J Lines, circa 1910. He has had a quality sympathetic restoration. Attention to detail on these top of the range horses includes having teeth and finer detail generally in the carving. He also bears a "Thistle" badge on his stand, originally mounted on his martingale, it commemorates one of Lines's early workshops on the Caledonian Road in Victorian London.
Mounted on an impressive sturdy stand, Neddy Brown is the classic Edwardian nursery feature.
G&J 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
