Ayres Rocking Horses

Probably the most revered of English rocking horse makers, F. H. Ayres traces its roots back to London in 1810 when Edward Ayres started his business as a cabinet maker. These beautiful rocking horses were produced in great numbers over the years. Most of those which survive date from 1880-1940. They are lovely and surprisingly robust horses that can be repaired, renovated and restored to give many years of pleasure.
