‘Grace’ A light dapple grey F H Ayres extra carved rocking horse on a safety stand.
‘Grace’ is a light dapple
grey F H Ayres extra carved rocking horse on a safety stand, circa 1910.
We have tried to retain her originality and character as much as
possible whilst giving her a new lease of life.
Grace has had new tack, made
from top quality English Sedgewick leather, which consists of fixed
bridle, saddle and martingale, decorated with new red rosettes and new
stirrup leathers. We have not changed her paintwork, hair, saddle cloth
and stirrups. We have even managed to reuse the original aged nails for
her tack. Her stand has been refurbished, the pillars, top rail and foot
rails are original but the base has been replaced.
Her measurements are:
Length 137cm, Height 107cm, Width 43cm
F H Ayres are known as the
‘Rolls Royce’ of rocking horse makers and a horse of her quality would
most likely have been sold in Harrods and Selfridges. Being extra carved
makes her the top of the range model and Ayres horses with original
paintwork are much sought after.
Grace is fit and ready to
ride, although she would look equally as good as a piece of fine
furniture and a true heirloom to pass along the generations.
