Description

This is a dashing, collectible antique pair of Marly horses. A French, bronze equine statue in the manner of Guillaume Coustou (1677-1746), dating to the late 19th century, circa 1900.
Excellent representations of the famous Marly horses - on display in the Louvre
Each displaying a desirable aged patina - pleasingly natural finish
Appreciably heavy bronze in very good original condition
Weighing 7.74kg and 7.70kg respectively (approximately 17lb each)
Two horses rear up as their grooms struggle to contain their inherent power
The majesty of each horse resplendent with their sense of dynamism
Defined, muscular haunches beneath detailed horse tack
Further embellished with flowing manes and swishing tails
Each groom with a look of surprise and fear at the ensuing situation
Representative miniature leather reigns unite them with the animal
The originals commissioned by King Louis XV, for the gardens of the Chateau de Marly
Standing upon a detailed base and bearing the signature of the original sculptural artist Coustou
This is a striking and eternally collectible antique pair of Marly horses. Considered a masterpiece of French sculpture, the large marble originals skilfully represented here in quality, heavy bronze. With the originals displayed in the Musee de Louvre, this is an opportunity to grace your home or institution with fine examples of the breed. Delivered polished and ready to showcase.
