Item Description:

 

Today we have for your consideration a very detailed Spelter statue of two colonial horseback riders fending off an attacking wolf.

This is a VERY heavy statue composed of white metal (which is defined as a soft metallic alloy). PLEASE NOTE that we do not suggest picking this piece up by any part / appendage as breakage could occur.

The wood base upon which this statues rests measures 10 – 1/8” in length and is 5.75” in width. The statue shifts upon the base when moved as it probably just needs to be tightened.  Four brass circular “feet” are attached to the base and support the entire statue. The base is painted black and does show signs of age related wear.

The very detailed statue itself measures 8.75” in length and is approximately 9” in height. The two colonial riders are atop their steeds and the rider in the foreground has his sword drawn to fend off an attack from a nearby wolf. Both riders are holding tightly to their steed’s reins as they gallop across what appears to be fairly rocky, wooded terrain.

All aspects of this metal-worked statue appear to be intact which no chips, cracks or breaks in evidence. This notary feels that this statue could benefit from a light cleaning to remove its dust / debris.

This statue is in very good condition considering its age and is ready to take up residence on the mantle in your home.

If you have any questions, please be sure to ask!
