47" plain carved Ayres

We found original paint wonderfully intact under Nobby's overpainting, which proved a delight to reveal and repair.

Nobby seems to be a Harrod's model, he came with a cut-down saddle block, which had the same original paint over it, and a removable saddle made on a tree identical to that used on D Type Ayres horses.

Stand is mostly an earlier replacement, retained as it was. Original hoof rails adn ironword. One new ear, repaired original paint.
