GENERAL - JR Smith Nursery swingstand -SOLD

A very rare extra carved rocking horse designed to carry three riders. The stand horse has metal supports at either end which then hold basket seats. This type of Rocking Horse would have been a feature in the nursery of a wealthy family of the past and would probably have been supervised by a nanny. A wonderful piece of nostalgia, circa 1914. General has now been stripped of his old gesso, re-gessoed. He has been dappled in the traditional JR Smith style. The middle picture shows what he looked like on arrival. The bottom picture shows him after dappling and the top picture shows him with his antiquing completed. He has a gorgeous light grey mane and tail, burgundy saddlecloth with complimentary braid. General is available as a swingstand horse WITHOUT the baskets for 1950. Alternatively with baskets and ironwork the price is 2800

Asking Price: 1,950.00
