Artemis

£2,495.00

‘Artemis’ is a wonderful F H Ayres rocking horse on a safety stand.

Circa 1920, she stands proudly with finely carved features and will make a wonderful centerpiece or display in any home.

Artemis has a real horsehair mane and tail, glass eyes, and a fixed leather bridle and saddle. We have retained as much of her original tack as possible but had to replace some items which were missing or too aged. She retains her original paintwork and has had a good clean and polish so that hopefully she will be good to go for another 100 years. The stand bears the stencil mark ‘Whiteleys’ and has a number 5 to indicate it’s size. We have researched Whiteleys and it was a large London department store started in 1911, eventually bought out by Selfridges.

From the top English maker, she will grace your home even though she is now around 100 years old.

Her measurements are:

Height        113 cm

Width          40 cm

Length       130 cm
