Unrestored Rocking Horse

A really characterful antique rocking horse by Brassington & cooke in unrestored condition.

Clues to its make are in the carving style - take note of the thickness of the front legs where they meet the body, typical of the carving style of this maker.

His brown paint is not original, but a later albeit 'old' overpainting.
