The restoration and conservation of rocking horses is an important and major part of our business. We pride ourselves in this work - few others share our expertise. Rocking horses come into our workshop in various stages of disrepair, ranging from the absolute dilapidated to fine examples with their original paint work.
The correct approach is vital, otherwise the value and character of your horse will be lost. Upon inspection of your rocking horse and after detailed discussion about the work required, we will give a firm quotation. You will then be assured of the total cost with no hidden extras. Telephone estimates can be given - please have your horse near the phone and a tape measure to hand. Due to our vast restoration experience these telephone estimates generally turn out to be very accurate. In many instances we can identify the maker of your rocking horse and provide you with a short history of the firm. Restored rocking horses are regularly available for sale.
We buy old wooden rocking horses - any condition considered. We have, for many years, operated a rocking horse painting service to the trade. An increasing number of rocking horse makers and restorers use this service. Some on a regular basis and some only occasionally when a particular historical style is required.
