I have a beautiful old, gliding steel(?) hobby horse that I cannot seem to find much information on.  He’s in amazing condition but no longer has a saddle or reins. He has the name “Nobby Hobby” on the bottom side rail and on the front rail it says Corcoran Manufacturing Ohio Green Arrow Line.  Any idea of the age or value? Thank you!  Cathy

Corcoran Mfg. Co. was incorporated in Cincinnati in 1916. The company was dissolved in 1934. “Nobby Hobby” is a gliding horse attached to a stationary base sometimes called a “safety stand” or “swinger stand.” A similar stand was patented by Philip Marqua of Cincinnati in 1878 as an “Improvement in Hobby or Rocking-Horses.” Rocking horses were sometimes called “exercising” horses. Steel rocking horses are rare. An online seller lists a Nobby Hobby horse, missing the leather ears, reins, and saddle, for $1,195. A Corcoran pedal horse sold for over $3,000 a few years ago.
