Basically a toy horse mounted on a tricycle, they continued to be made in France until circa 1914. They typically had cast iron heads, supporting a hand crank from which a chain drive drove the rear wheels. Steering was achieved by foot pedals on the front wheel.
British toy makers also made them in quantity 1880-1914, variations include having the front wheel cranked and turned by pedals, with steering enabled by a handlebar on the head passing through a shaft down to the wheel.
In the 1980s replicas were imported from the Phillipines, often suitably "distressed".

Robert was a great experimenter and produced several special horses, the most special were a Unicorn and a winged Pegasus rocking horse.
The latter can now be viewed at our studio in Shropshire, and a rather magnificent rocking horse it is. Robert patented the stand arrangement that allows this horse to raise his front hooves, the magnificent wings are snugly fitted, but detachable, a very practical consideration if it comes to moving such a large horse.
