F H Ayres extra carved rocking horse
Newly restored large F H Ayres rocking horse ‘Napoleon’.
Napoleon came to us in a sorry state, he was originally covered in calf skin, these types were one of the top models produced by F H Ayres. Sadly the skin could not be repaired and so he has had a full restore and repaint, although we have managed to keep his stand original with minimal work needed to that. There is the remainder of a stencil on the base of the stand which reads ‘Hamleys London’. Napoleon would have been sold in Hamleys when he was new.
As you can see he has transformed into a beautiful horse, his extra carving shines through and he is now ready to last another 100 years.
