ROCKING HORSES

A GUIDE BY

SALLYS ROCKING HORSES Ltd

F H AYRES PRODUCED SOME OF THE FINEST QUALITY ROCKING HORSES OF THE LATE 1800s AND EARLY 1900s.

THE COMPANY WAS BASED AT 111 ALDERSGATE STREET IN LONDON AND WAS IN BUSINESS FROM 1864-1940.

THERE ARE QUITE DISTINCT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE CARVING OF THE EARLIER AND LATER HORSES. SOMETIMES HORSES ARE FOUND WITH THE COMPANY LOGO EITHER ON THE SWING STAND OR THE BELLY OF THE HORSE, ALTHOUGH MORE OFTEN OR NOT THIS HAS LONG SINCE DISAPPEARED.

THEY WERE ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RARE TO FIND SPRING STANDS, SWIVEL HEADS AND TILTED HEAD HORSES.
