Old copper plaque or wall plate with a horse head, Denmark, 1930
If you did not know, I will tell you now: I do love horses (and dogs for that matter). So when this plaque came up for sale, I just knew it had to come to my shop.
Not because the horse is portrayed that well. I have seen better portraits of horses. But is just that, that endeared me to it.
It is more or less a naive portrait. The maker was a talented copper smith but not a very talented painter. But he probably, just like me, loved horses and gave it his best shot.
