A GUIDE TO COLLINSON ROCKING HORSES

With their rectangular stand pillars, traditional pin eyes and distinctive diamonds on the front and back of the swing stands, Collinsons horses are very easy to identify.
However, they also made other horse related items such as push horses and hobby horses along with a small amount of fabric covered horses which were produced in the 1960's.
Whilst Collinsons horses lack the fine carving associated with earier horses, they are very well made, solid and an excellent investment for future years.
