Animal lovers and particularly horse fans are sure to take great delight in this lovely bronze horse statue depicting a ladies hunter with a blacksmith fettling one of its back leg shoes.
The detailing in this piece is fantastic, from the bucket being used by the blacksmith and the brush he is using to wash off the debris from the hoof before working on the shoe, through to the horses reign standing up as if it has been looped around a hook to keep the horse tethered. The stance of the blacksmith is also very lifelike giving the distinct impression that he is leaning into the horse to keep the leg in the right position, just as real blacksmiths do.
The fine detailing includes the rendition of a lady’s side saddle and the mane swept to one side in the manner of fine pedigree horses which adds additional charm to this lovely bronze animal sculpture.
Dating from the late 1900s, this piece is in excellent condition and is set on an attractive marble base. It is a hot cast solid bronze recast of an original produced using the traditional ‘lost wax’ method.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
