Date Description: Vintage J Collinson & Son Rocking Horse
Country of Origin: England
Dealer Reference: S224


The joy of Christmas is in a child's rocking horse. This mid century wooden horse was made by the company of J Collinson & Son, who made these dapple grey horses (after a visit by Queen Victoria in 1851, during which she rode a dapple grey, they stopped making other colours and just made the greys in honour of the Queen)
This horse is largely unrestored. The surface is original, with cracks and rubbing. The saddle is partly replaced, reins and halter missing, and the mane is cut short. The stand is in good condition. It could be restored, but has an aged charm in its present condition. Circa 1950
