@paulhill1: Hi paul, No very good condition its just a little dirty in the picture. I was starting to take bits off to give it a good clean.To be honest Im not to sure of the wood its a very heavy sturdy piece. Theres only 500 in the world i wouldnt take that for it fully handcrafted he is a link for one i found on ebay in australia http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Limited-Millenium-Edition-Large-Wooden-Rocking-Horse-/150608434439

@paulhill1: No paul i wont take 200 for it, and i will deliver but i need the asking price to let this go other wise i will just keep it, do some research on them there spread out across the world so there isnt many in ireland! Cheers Craig.
paulhill1 asked a question 12/08/2011 9:03 am (3 years ago):
Hi Craig
No worries, did some research, not making 500 anywhere and nobody seems to know what materials they are handcrafted from. Good luck selling what with the country the way it is and all.
Geeko says 16/08/2011 11:43 pm (3 years ago):
they are easily worth that money all day long they are collectors items, i done some research and what i found was the bottom half is made from mahogany and the horse itself canadian oak. To be honest im not to pushed to sell it if i get the asking i will let it go if not i will keep it here. Cheers

Hi Craig. Ta for the info re what its made from, couldn't find a confirm on that in any listing. Anyway found a couple of ebays 190564928587 and 110674324276 [just key in number in search field], they dont seem to be getting near 500. BTW it's hard to find this stuff as the manufacturer's name doesn't appear in any of the ads. If a collector doesn't show for this and you still want rid of it, I'm just looking for a nice horse for my girl so - €270 seeing as how you deliver

@paulhill1:the first one il admit is cheap, but the 2nd is in bits i myself wouldnt pay 150 for it, like someone tried to sand it all down and now is in bits. We could come to some sort of deal but it would be above 270 pm me if you like.

Hi Craig, did a bit more digging, couldn't get why a 'limited edition' had no manufacturer. Dunno how much of this you know but [mate of mine says]these are containered in from Indonesia and usually made from highly polished albasia. Anyways I'm just looking for a nice horse for my girl so - €270 incl delivery, she needs to see and like it first [not scared by its head -she's 3], horse needs to be very good condition, these can sometimes split at joins.

@paulhill1: there english paul not asian, im not going to take that for it so unless your offer has gone up dont bother making another. Thanks.

This still for sale, said I'd give it a last go, ebay 320683844210 sold for £200 and 350458469276 is £490 new so you're doing good at €280. Reckon the first thing I'd do with it is switch out that plaque for one with the horse's name on.
