Distinctive restoration of a 1960s classic Collinsons rocking horse. This recently restored horse has been sanded and lightly varnished to give a natural wood finish. Leg joints have been left exsposed as features on the finished horse.
New replacement tack is in keeping with Collinsons original patterns, with painted eyes replacing the original drawing pin eyes.
All completed with a new natural horse hair mane and tail. The stand has also been renovated and given a waxed finish.
Collinsons of Liverpool were an old family of rocking horse makers from the 1830s until 1992, spanning no less than five generations. They are particularly noted for their post war production when most of their competitors either ceased trading or stopped making rocking horses. The design is fairly distinctive, with crested heads, rectangular pillars and corduroy saddles as noteworthy indicators for this marque.
