Moxhams Antiques - Sportiboy Rocking horse by Lines Brothers, c.1920, £2,250. David Pickup Antiques - An Arts & Crafts silvered copper rosewater dish, £1,600.

Christmas is advancing at a rate this year with everyone making up for lost celebrations last year and the members of The Cotswold Art & Antiques Dealers’ Association (CADA) are getting into the spirit of things with an array of tempting impressive and unique gifts and a variety of exhibitions in the run up to the festivities.

All items are available to browse via the CADA members’ websites.

A 1920’s Sportiboy rocking horse by Lines Brothers, £2,250 or a rare Victorian toy stable, circa 1902, £1,150, both from Moxhams Antiques, could provide hours of fun. The stable comes complete with working hoist from the ground floor to the hay loft, three loose boxes with hinged doors and food troughs, as well as a tack room. Another original game could sit beautifully for a quiet moment of play – a Victorian wood and marble solitaire set is £95 from Prichard Antiques.
