Victorian rocking horse buyers admire our Victorian rocking horses. Not all rocking horses are Victorian but the Kensington Rocking Horse Company specialises in Victorian wooden rocking horses. These are individually carved by skilled craftsmen in the UK in the traditional fashion. Our Victorian rocking horses can be antiqued through the application of a special lacquer which simulates natural ageing.

Our Victorian rocking horses are inspired by the rocking horses of F.H. Ayres and G & J Lines and others. The term Victorian rocking horse is often used, though people also talk about Georgian bow rockers. In fact, it was arguably the Edwardian era which saw the zenith of British rocking horse making before the long-term decline exacerbated by the First World War. This is an investment in beautiful furniture, a plaything and an heirloom.
