You are viewing a wonderful French bronze casting depicting a steeple chaser in full stride. The piece is cast from the finest brown bronze which has a lovely patina to it. Man and horse sit squarely on a black marble base and this is offered in perfect condition ready for home decorative use right away.
We cannot find a signature on the piece but believe it to be by a talented artist due to the quality of the casting and the way the scene has been captured. The energy and dynamism to the piece has really been caught with great skill by the artist, particularly if you look at details like the horses muscletone. This would be a great collectors piece for the horse lover or general collector.
Being bronze this will last forever without rusting and hence is a great investment as it will always appreciate in value. Aside from being aesthetically pleasing and nice to look at they can also become heirlooms.
Bronze is any of several alloys consisting mainly of copper and tin. Neither ancient nor modern bronzes consist only of these two metals. Zinc, lead, and silver were added to bronze alloys by Greek and Roman founders for use in tools, weapons, coins, and objects of art. Zinc, lead, and other metals are occasionally present in modern bronze.
