Coming Soon……. Very beautiful and rare F H Ayres horse on a swing stand. This horse is dated around 1885 and is typical of the early heavy set Ayres horses of the period. Standing 46” tall the height belies his true stature. He is very wide and substantial {and heavy}. and has the very expressive and fierce face of these distinctive horses. He bears the original F H Ayres’ stamp on his belly which is untouched and appears as it was found under the overpaint which was carefully removed, Some original dappling is evident but there will have areas which need addressing. Most of the original gesso is sound and firm with a few areas needing very minor stabilising.  He also has the carvers mark of a number ‘1’ stamped into his forehead. The stand is all original as it all the metal furnishings. He will be a visual feast when completed in the very near future. O/A height 47”
