 Pip F. H. Ayres ~ £1100

A rare and unusual early 1900’s plain carved Ayres, (78 cm) 30 ¾ inches tall by (82 cm) 32 inches long (stand length). He is in good sturdy condition with original paint, metal rosettes and remnants of tack, mane and tail. Lightly cleaned, with a small amount of paint repair to legs and a shoulder but nothing more. Replacement silk for existing brass rosettes matched to the original colour. A small amount of hair was added to mane and tail as he did look so very bald! He has a no. 2 on his stand and he does have the tip of his toe missing, this makes no difference to his rock and as he would be to small to be ridden now he's older won't affect him at all. These tiny Ayres are hard to find in such fantastic original condition.

   Joey War Horse Lines Bros ~ £1200 

 A beautiful restored and rare rocking horse standing 44 inches high, he is a Sportiboy model by Lines Bros circa 1930. This horse was over painted with brown gloss which was carefully removed to reveal his lovely original bay colouring. He has white socks and a white blaze down his face, the original paint is worn and has some damage but overall is in excellent condition. He arrived with a saddle usually seen on the tournament model Sportiboy horses but he has no evidence of the harness they would have had, his saddle does have some repairs to it. He also has red lining on the base of his stand and the bay colour is very beautifully shaded. He has a pelham bit and double reins in the style of the war horses along with a saddle cloth of hessian type fabric. Whether he was a one off or perhaps a different model that Lines Bros did I don't know. But I do think the warhorse style suits him.
