Antique Rocking Horses

A hobby horse, attributed to Collinsons of Liverpool.

This attribution is based only on the basis of similarity to their paint designs. Hobby horses tended to have gone out of fashion before rocking horses in the 1920s, so would tend towards an interwar date for Morris. Paintwork is original, but missing bridle and reins. For a toy that must have been produced in large numbers, there are sadly very few original survivors.

Collinsons of Liverpool is a famous rocking horse making family going back as far as 1836. They are especially collectable today from their postwar output, producing cheaper horses in the increasingly mass produced markets emerging. At this period their designs are quite distinctive with rectangular pillars, diamond shaped pillar covers, brass pin eyes, cordouroy saddles and a distinctive paint design. Medium and larger horses seem to have used rocking iron brackets from what must have been an enormous stock of Lines brackets.
Production tailed off in the 1980s, with the firm ceasing trading after five generations in the same family in 1992.
