An archaic bronze figure formed as a 'leaping' horse standing on a base pierced for attachment; the animal's ears are pricked forwards, its mane and tail cropped and mouth open, with prominent 'round' hips; wearing a decorative harness at the chest. 70 grams, 56mm (2 1/4"). Very fine condition.

Provenance
From a private London, UK, gallery; acquired in 2014; previously in a private German collection, since the 1980s.
Literature
Cf. National Sporting Library and Museum, Greek Statuette of a Horse, ca. 750-600 BCE, for an equine figure with comparable features.
