Details

19th Century Replica

The Authentic Models Victorian Rocking Horse is a full-sized reproduction of an original 19th century rocking horse. All details, construction, carving and dimensions are exactly after the specifications of original Victorian playroom horses.

Handmade Construction

Hand carved from solid plantation grown mature mahogany, the miniature real leather saddle and all other bridle leather gear, tack, reins and sling are handmade by skilled artisans. The glass eyes are also hand blown. The swing irons are in nickel-plated steel, and all other hardware is in solid brass, including the stirrups. The leather sling is locked in place and bolted down, and the mahogany base has classic Victorian-style safety swing arms.

Each horse is sold with a numbered Authentic Models plaque, showcasing the uniqueness and handmade nature of each individual rocking horse. The expert skills of wood carvers, cabinetmakers, and saddlers are all evident in this masterpiece. Hand finished in a warm and glowing French-style varnish, slightly distressed to make it look somewhat aged, this is a timeless treasure and a dream-toy for both boys and girls. Imagine its value in 50 or 100 years!

Historical Decor

Younger sons born into nobility or the gentry were often sent to serve at the Royal Court as pages of honor. Part of their education was learning tournament jousting. The master-at-arms used wooden horses mounted on swings to teach skills with sword and lance. This wooden horse evolved over time into the classic rocking horse. No upper class children’s playroom was without one. Some were mounted on oval wood rockers, others on a ‘safety’ stand, where steel swings allowed for greater movement on a stationary base.
