A large Collinsons rocking horse in need of restoration.
Although showing some condition, "Catherine" is perfectly serviceable and in full working order. The paintwork has some small areas with flaking gesso, the stand needs revarnishing, but apart from that she is a very useable horse. A new mane and tail, in the colour of your choice and stirrups can be provided.
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.
