Restoration Examples

Our Restoration Proces

Famously, rocking horses, even those from well known makers, are poorly marked, though more commonly the ravishes of time have obliterated any markings, even then, there are still key identification points, years of acquired knowledge have taught us exactly what to look for.

Once we have established the maker and provided you with our expert advise on your particular horse, its over to you. You can now, with our guidance tell us exactly how you envisage your horse to look upon completion of restoration.

Not every body wants a 100% restoration, Whilst most of our customers want to preserve the original features and character of their horse occasionally we are asked to for a complete new look, a very recent example of this being a horse featured below.

Despite it being a collectable Lines Sportiboy, the customer really fell in love with our zebra photograph shown in the brochure and requested we go ahead with the transformation.

Once your rocking horses restoration is complete and only when you are entirely happy with the horse we will arrange delivery with you. We also offer an added extra ,this includes a small booklet on the history of the maker of your horse, a small booklet containing a description of the restoration process undergone and beautiful before and after images and finally a valuation certificate signed and dated by ourselves.
