PPP - Vintage Arabian Mare & Foal Set
Curio Scale, handmade earthenware sculpture from a commercially made & Vintage (early 1960's, discontinued decades ago) mould which I own.
Mare is approximately 13cm wide (nose to tail) and 14cm tall (to highest point. The foal is 7cm wide and 8.5cm tall to the ear tips.
Incredibly delicate Arabian mare and foal set. These are cast from decades old Duncan Moulds, the masters of which were inspired by popular Hagen Renaker pieces. I do not pour these very often, to save the integrity of these old and delicate moulds.
As you can see the foal is simply finished in a very soft baby bay; the mare is a gorgeous and pale chestnut roan. She has incredible detailing from her realistic eyes and hooves to her crisp white markings, variegated mane and tail and individual roan "hairs" added one by one using the sgrafitto method (where the hairs are literally etched into the underglaze). Both pieces are finished with sparkling gloss clear glaze; the mare has my logo on her belly, the foal (being tiny) has the underside of her hooves signed.
*Notes: tiny mineral spot on the mare's right hip (does not not detract - could be a flea bite!). These items are individually handmade from all natural products (earthenware clay, underglazes and glaze) , not factory produced.
