Marly Horse Bronze Lamp for sale
Item ID: 373812
In 1739, King Louis XV of France commissioned Guillaume Coustou to create a pair of equestrian statues to adorn a pond at Chateau de Marly. These statues are now in the Louvre.
This lamp is a late nineteenth century copy of one of those statues. It is solid bronze, signed and inscribed on the back as having been presented as a farewell gift to Captain A. S. Callan in 1919 (see detail photos).
It is finely cast and was finished and refined by the bronze factory artists. All parts are intact, including the often missing reins held by the horse trainer.
Probably made into a lamp in the late 1940's or early 50's, it would be a stunning addtion to any decor. It has been completely cleaned, polished and rewired with a solid brass 3 way socket.
Lamp shade is for display only and is not included. Height listed is to top of socket. Statue itself is approximately 15 inches high.
