You are viewing "Biscuit" a stunning example of a old vintage antique bassington and cooke solid wooden rocking horse. This rocking horse is built to last as shown. Solid build quality is evident with the heavy solid wood body and the fact he is still fully intact.
Floor to ears is approx 43inches and his head is slightly turned to the right. Original eyes still in place and paintwork in overall good condition.
He has clearly been well loved and used which really does add to his ageing charm, withstanding many many years of being ridden and delight plenty of children. Made before the war and in remarkable condition considering he is getting on.Bassington and cooke were prolific rocking horse makers in their time and very few of their distinctive rocking horses survived the war and beyond because back then if a horse broke, sadly it was usually just thrown away. So those that are around are usually lovingly restored and kept as future heirlooms. This particular horse has some mane and tail left. Over all he is in good condition with loads of character. Swingers work as they should do. No evidence of rot anywhere and interestingly he has even still got his original saddle! He is for sale elsewhere, should I sell him, I have every right to remove the advert. So please note if his advert is active, then yes he is still for sale. Collection is from westerham in Kent. You may book a courier however I'm not responsible for Biscuit after he leaves.
I will however do my best to pack and wrap him. Collection is to be made within 1 week please.I've been honest he's in superb condition for his age. OTHER ROCKING HORSES FOR SALE, SEE MY OTHER ITEMS.
