For comparison see a rocking Horse from circa 1925 illustrated by Patricia Mullens in The Rocking Horse, A History of Moving Toy Horses, London, 1992, London, p103. This illustrated example, by the Lines Bros Ltd., was marketed at the time as ‘extra carved’ and like the present lot is a dappled grey with identically turned pine supporting uprights. Lines Bros was established in 1919 by three brothers Will, Arthur and Walter who manufactured toys in Ormside Street on the Old Kent Road from 1919. The success of their company grew as smart retailers such as Harrods, and further afield, Harvey Greenacre & Co. Ltd. of Durban, South Africa, amongst others, ordered stock from them.
