DESCRIPTION

Matt porcelain white horse sculpture with saddle and enamel details. The reins are made of leather and the rings that attach them to the mouth are 18k gold plated.

Thanks to Lladró's long tradition in the art of depicting horses, all the features of the strong quarter horse are well captured in this sculpture, especially on its of powerful anatomy, showing off the most developed muscle in its species. The saddle is decorated in silver and gold tones using the complex metallic lustre technique. Part of the complexity of making this piece, is to keep the right proportions during the firing process in the kiln, where all pieces undergo a reduction in size of around 15% due to water loss, a challenge specially for horses, which are supported solely on their four slender legs.
