The rocking horse maker, J. Collinson of Liverpool, enjoys the distinction of the longest uninterrupted period of rocking horse making in British history. It is believed that this family firm began making rocking horses in Liverpool in 1836 and continued until its ultimate demise in the early 1990s. Queen Victoria's visit to the works in 1851 is widely credited with helping to popularise the dapple grey. Collinson only made dapple greys.
