JR Smith


Circa 1900






Early and fairly rare rocking horse, she is in very good condition for her age and will restore beautifully. Finding original paint in reasonably good condition under her overpaint was a real treat, and so interesting to see the almost aqua colour.

A very sweet little rocking horse suitable for someone who hasn't got the space for a larger one... and doesn't necessarily need it ridden, although these littlies are lovely for very young children, who can find large horses frightening - even a No 3 Roebuck is very tall when you're two feet tall!!

Smith horses are often mistaken for Lines, there is certainly a similarity in design. We now have three of these and have been extremely pleasantly surprised at the quality of their construction - they are just so sturdy! We will try to keep one or two in stock in future...
