Today we are excited to offer for sale a beautiful antique spelter statue of a Turkish soldier horse rider! This exquisitely crafted and designed art sculpture depicts a Turkish/Ottoman/Arabic soldier riding a majestic horse while holding his right arm up high (originally the figure was holding a weapon of some kind which is long gone). The statue is unsigned but it is very similar to the work of world-famous artist Antoine-Louis Barye (1795-1875). The figure is crafted of fine spelter, with a patinated verdi-gris bronze finish. The statuette presents very well and is in very good antique condition, with minor wear/oxidation and patina commensurate with age. This elegant and sophisticated piece will add scholarly refinement to any interior! Fresh to the market!
