Vintage horse racing trophy, bronze, France, 1960 b
This is a horse racing trophy. So you might assume that the jockey sitting in the saddle on the thoroughbred, has just won the Grand National or something similar. But do you see him smiling? No, not even a little bit. He looks very very disgruntled. Arrogant little chap.
The horse on the other hand is a beauty. Maybe his ears a bit larger than I would normally like, but for the rest just very very beautiful. Just for that reason the jockey on his back (yes, I checked, the horse is a he) could have dropped a little smile.
Bronze trophy, mounted on black marble, missing its rein.
Dimensions: marble base h 2 cm, w 17 cm, d 10 cm. Height total: h 20 cm.
