Bedwyn is a delightful extra carved G and J Lines rocking horse. He has been over painted many years ago, but
his original paintwork is probably still recoverable, so an interesting restoration project.

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
Prior to 1914 they operated five scattered workshops across
London. The brackets usually have been stamped on the underside,
with J&G being stamped on a slightly different model with a thicker
neck to those stamped G&J.
Lines Bros was a company formed after World War 1 by George and Walter Lines, sons of Joseph Lines who had founded the famous Lines company. Lines Bros became Triang in 1927 and went on the absorb the parent company and for a while become the largest toy maker in the world.
They are renowned for their sportiboy model, available in a number of sizes it featured a detachable saddle, bowler hat covers on the irons and pillar tops and the distinctive circular, later triangular triang badge.
