Widely regarded as the finest victorian and Edwardian rocking horses, Frederick Henry Ayres combined a flair for innovation with high quality.
Ayres's horses tended to look more masculine, the large top of the range extra carved horses are certainly impressive. The magnificent Ayres D Type models are very sought after featuring extra carving, turned and tilted heads and impressive fully morticed stands. Ayres also made spring stand horses, patent turning head models and bow rocking horses to mention but a few innovations.
due to heavy demand, our Ayres stock is currently being re-stocked, we are currently re-stocking this page, in addition to the D type, we will have an original Ayres and another fully restored one soon.
