Description

This is a lovingly preserved rocking horse from the early years of Triang.
Rocking Horses had been hand built by the Lines family business since Victorian times and this same skilled craft continued into the early years of 'Triang' when Lines Brothers Ltd launched under that name in 1926.

This little beauty had clearly been very well used and much loved in her prime; and equally well cherished in recent times. She has been sensitively conserved with a whisper light touch to keep every bit of her character as she has mellowed and aged with the years.
She has not been 'renovated', renewed, repainted or had new fittings applied.

The craftsmanship and skills of the rocking horse builders are clearly revealed through the layers of wear - the wooden model was first constructed and expertly carved and sculptured. The face in particular has lovely, delicate, friendly features. The figure was then overlaid with layers of gesso and painted to finish with a fine dapple grey coat. She has her original glass eyes and horse hair main and tail. The cloth and saddle are original also and there are some remains of her leather reins. She has lost her stirrups.

The stand is original and sound and the rocking mechanism all in good working order. The metal brackets are stamped Lines Bros Ltd, and it retains 2 circular metal Triang logo badges front and rear.
