Description

Our iconic rocking horse is a full sized reproduction of originals dating back to the 19th C. Hand carved in top quality mahogany. Hand made saddle and tack of real bridle leather. The expert skills of wood carvers, cabinetmakers, and saddlers are evident. Hand finished in a French style varnish, slightly distressed to make it look somewhat aged. A timeless treasure and a dream toy for both boys and girls.Younger sons born into nobility or the gentry were often sent to serve at the Royal Court as pages of honor. Part of their education was learning tournament jousting. The master at arms used wooden horses mounted on swings to teach skills with sword and lance. This wooden horse evolved over time into the classic rocking horse. No upper class childrens playroom was without one. Some were mounted on oval wood rockers, others on a safety stand, where steel swings allowed for greater movement on a stationary base.
