Rare Scots Grey rocking horse.

The Lines Scots Grey was illustrated in their 1914 catalogue. It was described as having detachable Cavalry Harness, Shoe Cases, Valise, Holsters, Martingale, Saddle Cloth, Military Bridle etc. Sadly "Mercury" has lost all but his saddle, but that does include the distinctive "epaulettes" on the rear of the saddle.
At 3ft to his saddle, he would equate to a "No 3" model, retailing at 75 shillings. As he bears the Hamley's name plate, we can assume he was retailed through this renowned store (and still in business today.)
He also bears two thistle badges, again dating him fairly close to the 1914 date. This is a splendid old rocking horse, original, but showing some age, well worthy of a sympathetic restoration (and owner!).
Height 44.5"

G&J Lines operated from 1850-1931 initially in the busy King's Cross area of London. They became Victorian England's largest rocking horse maker, yet maintained the highest qualities of workmanship and carving. G&J stands for the founding brothers, George and Joseph Lines
