Vintage Arabian Mare Cold Glazed
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.
Incredibly delicate Arabian mare, 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.
She was originally custom glazed in simple satin black with very little white. Unfortunately she suffered a minor break to a leg. Due to her delicacy, I decided to perform a cold repair on this piece, to try an minimise the chance of it happening again. She was then cold painted in a dappled rose grey (bay going grey) and then given four coats of hand applied and burnished cold glaze (high end cold glaze is what museums use on restoration pieces).
She has turned out beautifully as you can see, and will make a lovely addition to someone's china cabinet!
