Here for sale is our old family rocking horse. It was made for us around 1990, and saw much use from my brother and I at the time, more recently by our cousins, but has spent the last 10 years stored in the attic. Unfortunately the parents have moved out and we no longer have anywhere to keep him so he is reluctantly up for s beautiful made horse was built by Phil Hill of Birmingham, and is of the highest quality, with super carving and realistic shaping and detailing, this is the only one he had produced in this colour (at that time). The horse is large and sturdy and stands at 52 inches / 130cm high approx, and 61 inches / 155cm long (frame) approx, it is approx 20 inches / 51cm wide (frame). Where he has sat in the attic some of the leather is a little dry, but good bees wax should help this, the timber frame has also discoloured in a few places, again this should be easily rectifiable and if we had more room to work on home I would have sorted these things myself.
The rocker hangers are a little corroded, but not to the point they look bad, in fact they rather suit the character, however, the styrups do need replacing (very easy and cheap). A couple of the brass tacks have also corroded a little. As with all items this age, a few small cracks have started to appear in the pain on the horse. If you have any questions please feel free to ask, apologies but I can be slow replying. It is possible that we could deliver him at an additional cost but please talk to us for that.
