Helen Taylor. Antique Bear Collector and Restorer of Rocking Horses

I am a collector of Antique bears, love very early Steiff, musical

bears and I have a soft spot for ting a lings.

I am not a professional restorer, but I am restoring antique rocking

horses to a professional standard. Some of which I do sell. Usually the

old horses I find are covered in thick gloss paint, black and white

seems to be favourite. This I carefully remove and repair any damage, I

then gesso, and paint with acrylics. Some horses I paint in the

traditional dapple and others I paint in my own design.


I love antique toys but bears and rocking horses are my passion.
