It’s dated somewhere around the 1950’s with a rattan frame and caned seat. Here’s the finished repair: AdvertisementShare this:PinterestTwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

Hi there! I want to re-cane a rattan rocking horse JUST like the one you show here! The only experience I have in seat weaving is my dining chairs, which I did with fiber rush. I can’t really figure out how to start reweaving the rocking horse seat, and wondered if you could point me to (or sell me!) some instructions? Many thanks.
Hello, thanks for asking. I have no instructions, but if the rocking horse is still intact, take lots of photos and pay close attention as you disassemble. Soak the reed for several hours and use a couple of small tack nails on the underside to start. Or hold the end along frame with a clamp and wrapnit with the first few rows of weave until it’s secure. Hope this helps.
