I’m afraid I paid way too much for this figurine, but I just fell in love! Horses aren’t really my thing (as beautiful as they are), but something about the jockey won me over! I think it’s the style of dress (which looks to be art deco?), and the expression on the rider’s face – there’s something really lovely about the overall picture. Sadly I can’t quite work out the maker’s mark, but I’m fairly confident that it says ‘Germany’ underneath the maker’s name, so presumably then this is a piece of German art deco porcelain.
Note: The horse’s ear has been repaired at some point, but whoever did it made a decent job of it as the damage isn’t very noticeable at all (see photos)
