Gifts that last for generations not just for Christmas

Restoration work and horses for sale.

I have done a few rocking horse restorations for clients over the years, and I have recently bought a couple of horses as restoration projects, they are now looking for new homes. 
 

This horse was hand carved by G. Fell of Wareing & Gillows Lancaster in 1998, to the British toy safety standard, he had been used mainly as an ornament, and then sadly left in a garage.  He has now been restored to his former glory and is a lovely big horse.  He can take any rider up to 90kgs that's 14stone to me and you.  He is in very good condition with a full mane and tail.  He does have a couple of tiny marks as you would expect, but other wise he is in excellent condition and just waiting to find a new family.  He is for sale for 950 and delivery can be arranged to suit. For more information contact Sally on 07759 134 173


I also have another horse.  He is brand new and comes with an English Leather Bridle and brass buckles which can be removed, and an English and Italian leather saddle which will be nailed on for safety, as removable saddles tend to slip.

He is on an oiled pine safety rocker stand, this horse will look stunning in any house and be a very attractive piece of furniture as well as a much loved member of the family.  Who will be passed down the generations for your children's grandchildren to enjoy. He is for sale for 1500.  Viewing is strongly recommended, but I would ask you to ring first as I am always in apart from when I nip out.  Tel Sally on 07759 134 173


The following sequence of photographs is of a Dapple Grey that I restored. A beautiful rocking pony made in the 1800's he has been a much loved play mate for 4 generations of the same family, after being bought second hand in 1906.  It just goes to show good quality, can always be restored, and will last for hundreds of years.
