Antique Rocking Horses

Helena, JR and T Smith rocking horse

Helena is a highly original JR and T Smith rocking horse, dating to circa 1910-16. Whilst this rocking horse displays condition consistent with this age, apart from minor changes, such as the saddle flaps and trim, also the martingale.
Minor damage includes a chipped ear and a crude repair to replace the head, which has been screwed back on.
The value in Helena is in the originality of a fine rocking horse from the Edwardian period. Definately an item for the discerning collector, we have refrained from carrying out any restoration/conservation work on this rocking, which should in any event be both sympathetic and minimalist.

JR Smith was a toy making company based in London trading in various forms from 1881 until 1938. they produced a wide range of rocking horses and other toys of fairly good quality. Peculiar to the marque, the rocking horses did not have hooves "notched" or rebatted onto the side rails and the swing iron brackets were mounted over the pillars, avoiding the need to any decorative cap.
