Lines Sportiboy 2 cost £699 plus delivery. Please enquire for delivery cost.
This is a Lines Sportiboy 1930s circa that has had new gesso and paintwork, new saddle, bridle and all tack in black leather, new genuine horse hair to match original colour.
The stand has been lightly sanded and varnished to keep the old look safe. The stand metalwork has been cleaned and painted black as was originally.
The brackets on the stand have markings on the top surface: Lb ltd sp1 which stands for Lines Brothers Ltd Sportiboy 1, although this is a Sportiboy 2, the same brackets were used for both, the difference being that the Sportiboy 2 had teeth as in this one and the Sportiboy 1 had no teeth.
The horse had to be completely stripped because the old gesso was crumbling and falling off and lots of bare patches. The wood on the horse is sound and it is made of pine with beech legs. The stand is solid also although there are signs of some woodworm, about a dozen holes, and has been treated. This horse is a small size measureing: stand 44 inch x 15 inch. Overall height 38 inch. chest to rump 21 inch. Floor to saddle 31 inch. Front to back hooves 36 inch.
All work done by myself and can be contacted through my website address: www.cherishedrockinghorses.co.uk my email address: [email protected] or phone: 01909 531578. I am situated in Nottinghamshire.
