SECOND Large Walking Shire in black sabino

Traditional Scale, cast in earthenware and purchased in bisque from a local pottery 2 years ago.  Please read the heavy italics below.

Approximately 23cm/9" nose to tail and 22cm/8.9" tall to the high part of his mane.

This pretty drafter is a copy of an old Staffs piece, one of those ubiquitous heavy horses that were very popular in the 1970's and 80's.   I purchased four of these in bisque from from a local pottery 3 years ago; the first two were sold in decorator colours.  This one has been simply and sympathetically finished in gloss black Sabino, with nicely detailed feathering and some roaning on the belly.  

NOTE: The "second" pieces have sat here in my china cabinet (finished) for the past year, as I was unsure as to whether or not there would be a problem with the glaze.  These were fired at the same time as a batch of earthenware that did not fit my American glaze stock and had problems: some crazed, some shivered (the glaze falls off in places).  Neither crazing nor shivering has occurred on this piece in the year it has been in my cabinet, however I am selling this with a "no return" policy and at a discounted rate in the understanding that the buyer is fully informed.
