NEW Victorian rocking horse with Western saddle >>

Our iconic rocking horse is a full-sized reproduction of originals dating back to the 19th C. Victorian rocking horse is hand carved in top quality mahogany. Hand made saddle and tack of real bridle leather. The expert skills of wood carvers, cabinetmakers, and saddlers are evident. Hand finished in a warm and glowing French-style varnish, slightly distressed to make it look somewhat aged. A timeless treasure and a dream-toy for both boys and girls. Imagine its value in 50 or 100 years!

Special Gift Ideas for the Special People in Your Life

Finding the perfect gift can be a daunting experience for many people, especially if you’re shopping for someone special. Not just any gift will do. From time to time, the search for just the right gift ends up being a lesson in frustration. Perhaps the recipient has a special hobby, or it’s possible that he or she is one of those people that seem to have “everything.” If you’re faced with either of those dilemmas, you'll be delighted by our wide and wonderful selection of gifts we have for that special, hard-to-gift person in your life.

Gifts have the power to speak volumes without giver or recipient uttering a word. World travelers or friends moving away would be touched with a gift of a compass, so they will always know the direction toward home. Gift a friend with long-range plans with a spyglass and he or she will be able to see even further ahead.

Almost everyone has a hobby of some kind, and our collections offer plenty of gift ideas for the hobbyist. Collectors of small items, such as stamps or coins, would enjoy looking at the fine details of their collectibles with our wide selection of beautiful magnifying glasses. The recreational boater would appreciate the thoughtful gift of a ship model, nautical decor or nautical accessories. The aviation buff would be impressed with the gift of a finely detailed airplane model or a reproduction WWI plane propeller to mount on a wall.

Venetian glass vases or elegant crystal accessories are perfect for the friend with a "sparkling" personality. How about an hourglass or a collectible Eye of the Time clock for the person who is always (or never) on time? Loved ones who work in the medical sector, medical students or pharmacists would be thrilled to own one of our authentically made apothecary jars or vintage microscope.

For the horticulturalist in your life, of just someone who loves flowers, our reproduction educational flower models are intricately detailed for close study. They are also exquisitely beautiful. These stunning flowers look so realistic that guests will be compelled to examine them.

A gift from our wide selection of modern and vintage reproduction board games featuring delicate Venetian glass or semi-precious stones is sure to be a winning gift for your favorite game fanatic. For the loved one who adores architecture, a gift of unique and extremely decorative architectural home accessories bound to produce plenty of admiration.

Gift giving doesn't need to be stressful or difficult. Our variety of elegant gifts is suitable for people of nearly all ages and lifestyles. Whether you are searching for gift ideas for the holidays, graduation day, a birthday or other special occasion, our selection of gift ideas is sure to delight even the fussiest recipient!

Gift giving
There are a vast number of occasions in which a gift is appropriate, from birthdays and holidays to thank you and even "just because."
