The lovely Victorian rocking horses combine the period charm of an antique traditional dapple grey rocking horse with the safety and reliability of the finest contemporary craftsmanship.

Authentic Victorian rocking horse patterns are used and the finishing is entrusted to a specialist artist who achieves a gorgeous finish which resembles antique patina. The Victorian rocking horse is available on a safety stand or a bow rocker.

As it is made in a most traditional style, the Victorian dapple grey rocking horse may superficially resemble other rocking horses you may have seen, but do not be misled: please compare the detail of the friendly faces, the high quality of the accessories and the expertise of the finishing!

Nowhere is the period charm and enduring appeal of the Victorian rocking horses shown to better effect than in the traditional rocking horse on bows which has captivated children and adults for more than two centuries.

You can choose between two sizes of Victorian horse. The other photos on this page depict horses in large plus - a size which is suitable for riding by most smaller adults. The horse featured here is the Victorian medium rocking horse, which is suitable for younger children.

Whilst most customers fall in love with the style and posture of the Ayres rocking horse head, this BCL rocking horse is inspired by the designs of BCL (formerly Baby Carriages), a Liverpool rocking horse maker.

The head, neck and facial characteristics of some original Victorian rocking horses were often crude and intimidating. Not so with these horses! The experience and expertise of our craftsman allows him faithfully to create rocking horses modeled on only the finest of them such as the Ayres rocking horse.

Durable premium English leather is the choice of the makers of the finest Chesterfield sofas and it is also our choice for the Victorian rocking horse saddle. The lovely tonal variation enhances the impression of high quality.
