Item:112563909674Here we have a gorgeous PAIR of antique spelter figurines of "Horses restrained by grooms". These would date to somewhere around 1900, after the original "Horses restrained by grooms" marble sculpture made by Guillaume Coustou c1745. These are lovely pieces, rare to find a true pair (looking left & right), they have a wonderful look & patina, I LOVE the flaky paint and the way it has naturally worn over the years. These would look lovely displayed either side of the mantel piece. Each measures approximately 8.5 inches by 7.5 inches by 5.5 inches, weighing approximately 2kgs. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. Here is some information you might find helpful/interesting regarding the original by Coustou. http://www.louvre.fr/en/oeuvre-notices/horses-restrained-grooms-known-marly-horsesPlease add me to your favourites list and take a look at my other items as I have hundreds that will be listed daily in the up and coming weeks. Please Note; I use new & recycled materials to ensure that your item arrives to you safely. I pack all of my items the best I can which you will see from my feedback. However, as with fragile items there is always a risk, items such as Antiques/Collectables, glass, ceramics, paintings etc are not insured for damage by any of the postal services, with the exception of The Royal Mail. This is why I offer a choice of postage options, so you can choose your preferred postage method. Collection in person is also available on all of my items. In the unfortunate, and unlikely event that something does get damaged or goes missing with the Royal Mail then I will do my very best to assist you in making a claim. I always obtain proof of postage for all of my sent items. Sadly I cannot be held responsible for the postal services poor handling of parcels. Here are a few links regarding Royal Mails compensation policies and how to make a claim if necessary. http://www.royalmail.com/business/help-and-support/Royal-Mails-retail-compensation-policy-for-loss http://www.royalmail.com/personal/help-and-support/claims-process-for-inland-items International Buyers – Please Note: Import duties; sometimes there will be a charge, I think this is mainly charged on high value items, this is something that the Government enforces to which I have no control of.
