This is a fine example made by Withers & Co and he has a nice history he was originally commissioned for the launch of one of the Harry Potter books (in the Waterstones' Leicester Square branch) before he arrived with his current owner in 2005 who is a well known children's author. He will come with a signed book My Secret Unicorn from her about unicorns to make him a very special and rare item.
Yes he does have a few scuffs (one on the hoof) and fine hairline cracks etc but he is still solid and a fine looking rare item to own. With his long mane and tail, leather saddle and stand is well made on a low swing rocker. The photos have been enlarged to show his faults and any viewing is welcome.
