In Georgian and early Victorian times, the traditional mount was the bow rocker, as that had been the principle design over the preceding decades, but the American, P.J. Marqua, devised and patented the safety stand in 1877. This static frame which eliminated the 'toe-trapping' characteristics associated with the bow rocker was quickly taken-up in England too and was patented in London by Haddon in 1880. Leather bridle and saddle, real horsehair for tail and mane and the use of only seasoned hardwoods are features which attract both adult and child to these lovely creations, which are sure to become a favourite, a family heirloom and a focal point for the home. This is an investment in beautiful furniture, a plaything and an heirloom.
