This original antique bow rocking horse is attributed to Paterson Edwards, based on a bow in their 1910 catalogue. It has undergone some conservation to preserve what is mostly all original, including tack and paintwork. This is a rare original work from a significant South East London toy maker, preserving it's originality and condition and hence suited for the discerning collector.
Leeway were a trading name for Paterson Edwards Ltd, who were prolific toy makers based in London from 1892 to 1989. Originally based in Peckham, they had moved to East Dulwich by 1907.

Collinsons of Liverpool is a famous rocking horse making family going back as far as 1836. They are especially collectable today from their postwar output, producing cheaper horses in the increasingly mass produced markets emerging. At this period their designs are quite distinctive with rectangular pillars, diamond shaped pillar covers, brass pin eyes, cordouroy saddles and a distinctive paint design. Medium and larger horses seem to have used rocking iron brackets from what must have been an enormous stock of Lines brackets.
Production tailed off in the 1980s, with the firm ceasing trading after five generations in the same family in 1992.
