FOR SALE: D'ARTAGNAN ANTIQUE AYRES ROCKING HORSE 45IN ORIGINAL PAINT
D'ARTAGNAN - PRICE - £1400
An old Ayres rocking horse that had been in the same family for three generations over 90 years.
The original paint was in very good order but the shellac had degraded, no longer protecting the paint so new shellac was made to match the original colour. The old leather was regrettably beyond restoration and for the rocking horse to be ridden again it was necessary to replicate its old tack, using the original metal rosettes with new ribbon. Now ready to be ridden again he would make a fabulous horse for a child or equally would make a wonderful addition for a collector. Horse is situated in West Sussex.
