This beautiful bronze [or copper?] is 40" tall. It's definitely old by the looks of the old, black velvet on the bottom of the base and the patina and spiderwebs inside the mouth. I haven't found any other online which matches it. I sure hope i can find out something about it. i bought it from a picker yesterday who got it in exchange for cleaning out a house for sale.
I think that it's Chinese. They have made a lot of rearing horse sculptures for many centuries. The saddle and harnesses on this one are different from the normal ones i could find online, so it might not be chinese after all. Where do you think it's from?
