Bow Rocking Horse

A fabulous example of a rocking horse on a deep bow rocker, in original unrestored condition.  The rich deep yellow colour is due to the ageing of the shellac varnish, which will continue to deepen in colour over time.  

Attributed to G & J Lines.

Early Period Bow Rocking Horse

A fabulous & rare Extra Carved bow rocking horse.  He has an extreme turn to his neck, pronounced elbows and stifles and a carved tongue.

This fine horse is unattributed in make although some have suggested that he has similarities in carving to the early Paul Leach style & displays the outstretched stance of the earlier period horses.

He is in restored condition in this photo.

Haddon Bow Rocking Horse

Circa 1970's is this Bow Rocking horse created by Haddon. 

They made these under the 'Eventer' range & the mould is evidently taken from a G J Lines bow rocking horse, which can be seen by way of the moulding that replicates the extra carving in the 'V' shape above it's front legs.

These bows were made with end seats for the children to sit upon in the nursery.
