 Blake ~ Lines Bros £750

SDC17865

A sturdy little 1920’s Lines Bros. SPORTIBOY restored and ready to go.

He is a SIZE 1 at 33 inches high in remarkably good near original condition with minimal paint repair to legs and eye lashes, He has a partially replaced mane, tail, and rosettes retaining what was left of his original, a replacement saddle blanket which copies exactly his original as it was beyond repair, replacement rains, stirrup leather and belly band which holds his original saddle safely in place. Sporti has three new coats of shellac protecting his paintwork as the original was too soot stained’

Cleaning him was a very slow process so as to conserve all his original dapples and paint work; he was very dirty and covered in sticky sooty deposits probably spending a lot of his life in his owners loft with perhaps a leaking chimney flu!

He had been with the same owner from new (about 1920's) but 10 years ago almost ended up in a skip. The elderly owners house had been boarded up for years and was being demolished but luckily the little horse was rescued by a neighbour who was intent on restoring him herself but was not able to find time so that’s how he came to be with me. However she did find a letter under his saddle written by the original owner to his parents in 1957. Little Sporti is looking  very smart once again and ready for his new home.
