This beautiful boy has had a previous very sympathetic restoration retaining a lot of his originality.
Restored to include retaining his original paintwork & saddlery preserved, with replacement stirrups, reins & bit. His replacement saddle cloths copied exactly the same from his original, in a vintage pure wool fabric with genuine antique gold fringing the same as Ayres used back in the time.
He benefits replaced cow hair as he would have had back in the time & also fabric rosettes.
He has all his wonderful old metal Ayres rosettes in tact, which have taken on a green/blue patina.
His swing stand is totally original & has been wax polished & rocks true & even.
It is lovely to see a rocking horse with all his battle scars, crazing to the paintwork & patina that only time can bring.
