Few heirlooms compare with a fine antique rocking horse. Not only was the craftsmanship at a standard rarely seen today, but it has the added investment value of being a genuine antique.

This fine old rocking horse  is by Frederick Henry Ayres and Company, arguably the most well known of the English Victorian-Edwardian rocking horse makers. Although there were others, such fine rocking horses were almost exclusively the preserve of England at the height of Empire.

Buying an antique rocking horse can be a sound long term investment. It is important that you are happy with your choice on what will probably be in your family for many years as a treasured heirloom. Some antique rocking horses retain much originality, others may be extensively restored to the point of appearing new.
At Sally's Rocking Horses, I hold an extensive collection of rocking horses to suit all tastes. Most rocking horses are still fully functional, in fact fully restored rocking horses usually can be used and simply have future restoration work to repair any wear and tear associated with use.
My collection of antique rocking horses is easily the largest in one place, in the UK, outside of a museum. I have a dedicated business premises, not a front room or a garden shed. I highly recommend a visit if you want to have genuine choice in a good setting. I also exhibit at some antiques fairs, you may be able to arrange a viewing at a location nearer to you. I probably sell more antique rocking horses than anyone else, I achieve this through competitive pricing and service. You may find cheaper on Ebay, and view obscure photographs. (I use a professional photographic studio to produce a portfolio of quality high resolution photographs of each rocking horse.)
You may travel far to see a rocking horse in someone's garage that then is not what you are really after, costing you valuable money and time! I do have the overhead of VAT, no one really wants to pay tax, but then no business that doesn't can't really offer this level of service and choice.
I can offer the security and piece of mind through taking debit and credit card payments, the card company will refund you if your rocking horse doesn't arrive, even if you live on the other side of the world.
Moving rocking horses, especially large ones, is not easy and can be quite expensive. I will deliver to most places in the UK for £85, which is very competitive with present day transport costs. You have the right under distance selling regulations to return a rocking horse if you are not satisfied. My delivery service allows me to make sure that you are happy with your rocking horse when delivered, as back loading is then relatively easy if you are not.
Browse the internet as much as you want, some sites may offer as many as a dozen antique rocking horses at best. If you will not find a wider selection, and I do pride myself on having broad tastes in rocking horses and related items. Enjoy my collection, it does change rapidly, so I highly recommend signing up to my monthly newsletter and new stock Looking forward to hearing from you soon
