“Tiberius” is a beautiful F H Ayres “D” Type rocking horse on a safety stand, c1935.

“Tiberius” is a very rare and special F H Ayres ‘D’ type rocking horse on the original D type safety stand, c1935. He is a number 6 in size, standing an impressive 49″ tall and has a wonderful lifelike stance, with a very turned neck and head facing toward his left. He has a beautifully detailed face with glass eyes, and even has a carved tongue. His whole body is extra carved with wonderful muscle detail and tone, showing off his muscular legs and neck – this model is such a delight for a horse lover to just admire.

The stand was in a poor state but is now restored, with the fluted runners this model is known for and their additional widening feature in the centre of the runner. We have tried to keep the aged patina and the fixing holes remain at the front and rear. To make Tiberius truly special we have fitted two silver 1935 George V Crowns, known for their  ‘Rocking Horse Design’ made in .500 Silver (28.28g) as you can see in the photos, making him truly unique and worth even more!

We have had to totally refinish Tiberius as he came to us in a poor state, however we have stayed true to the original look and dappling patterns. He has then had to have a new mane and tail and finally a new set of top quality removable leather tack to finish his look. We have many photographs of him throughout and will of course provide them to his new owner.

The ‘D’ type was the best quality horse made by F H Ayres and dates from around 1935. These are highly sought after and rarely come to market – a true collectors piece.

Tiberius is a special horse and a very desirable investment.

His measurements are:

Height 126 cm

Width 44 cm

Length 137 cm

DELIVERY INCLUDED UK MAINLAND exc Highlands. Other areas by arrangement and at additional cost. Or you may view and collect from us here at IP21. Courier is typically approx. 14 days but our courier will liaise with you to arrange a mutually convenient delivery date and time.

Please be aware these are mostly old horses and as such may show some minor age related characteristics. All the horses however are fully rideable and solid. If you are unsure, please arrange to come and view before purchasing. Viewing is very welcome by appointment.
