Dauphin: extra carved antique bow rocking horse

Circa 1870, 50"

A truly stunning and highly collectable horse.

Remarkably complete original paint was discovered while re-restoring Dauphin. This has been revealed and repaired.

His price is very reasonable for a horse of this rarity and quality with estimated value of $16,000.




Heathcliff: SOLD

A particularly elegant example of a D Type Ayres, although the inaccurate saddle distracts from the well-observed anatomy.

Heathcliff can be enjoyed as he is but would benefit from an authentic re-restoration.




Details to come for the following:

Mayfair: early unattributed bow

A very pretty bow restored in 2016-17, ready to enjoy. $11,500

Treasure: tiny Ayres

A true collector's delight with a super pretty face, retailers plaque, and wonderfully complete original condition including hair, bit, reins, stirrups and rosettes, all of which are easily lost over time. $4,000 firm.

39" Ayres, plain carved.

Lovely horse with a sweet face. Some damage commensurate with age. Paint is in good condition, most damage is to tack, loose stand spigots need re-wedging. $3000 as is or $3950 with conservation.

Poppy: 30" bow by Smith

A very desirable tiny bow horse in original condition. Wear and damage commensurate with age. Conservation recommended rather than full restoration. $3,250 as is.
