This Mahogany rocking horse by The Stevenson Brothers from Bethersden, England is based on a 1910 design originally manufactured by the legendary F.H. Ayres, purveyor of the finest rocking horses during the Victorian era, and prized by children of all ages and British royalty alike. Made from Mahogany wood, the horse is hand carved to show musculature and constructed using the traditional Victorian method of mortise and tenon, ensuring a sturdier connection between joints than the common dowel and peg style that weakens after years of riding and fitted with tanned English cowhide leather tack, sage green leather saddle top and tartan-plaid saddle blanket.When this Mahogany rocking horseŐs natural finish is polished, its takes on a beautiful reddish brown hue. And, when rocked in the light, the grain tends to change color. Mounted on a Victorian safety stand, designed in 1878 by PJ Marqua of Cincinnati, Ohio, the horse comes complete with a real horse hair mane and tail and hallmarked brass plaque bearing the makers name, date and unique number.
