I recently read somewhere not sure which book, that during a period of time in the Tang dynasty horses were in short supply. They set up breeding centers and after a few years came up with about 600,000 of these prized steeds. The piece has a really beautiful chocolate brown patina along with some surface oxidation. It appears that two pieces were joined together to make the piece, it is so large. 10 1/2 inche tall top of neck 15 inches from tip of tail to tip of front paw.
The girth or width across the top of the steed, is 5 inches, wow. The weight, 23 pounds, thats right, twenty three pounds, wow. Its a massive piece and quiet magnificient.
It comes from and antique show in ft. Lauderdale florida in the past couple months. Thank you and good luck.
