Once upon a time there was a rocking horse

A toy horse telling the story of childhoods in times gone by

 

For many of us, memories of childhood are bonded with a rocking horse. A toy that is often a true masterpiece of craftsmanship and - for passionate enthusiasts - even a collector's item.

Large and colourful, expressing all the romanticism of an era and all the ingenuity of the world of young children, Hall 1 is home to a refined selection of rocking horses made in Italy and Europe in the late nineteenth-early twentieth centuries.

 

The collection belongs to a couple of Veronese collectors who recently took over the Toy Museum after the death of its founder, lawyer Luciana Gaspari.

 

Made in wood, silk-screened tin or papier-mâché, some of these toy-horses come from old Middle European merry-go-rounds; others instead incorporate extraordinary mechanisms that allow children to reproduce the movements of a galloping horse.
