Well preserved Collinsons "hobby horse" in original condition. Dating to circa 1930-50, with rubber rimmed pressed steel wheels, with cow hair mane, painted eyes and leatherette bridle. Collinsons pattern paintwork, with condition appropriate for age.
These once popular children's toys are rare to find in this condition and identifiable to a given maker as in this example.
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.
