Again - another little cute miniature figurine in my online shop.
This one is more unusual for this diminutive size in that it features a military officer on horseback.
I love the lovely colour of his chestnut coloured mount. The little legs are without damages.
The officer wears a big white coloured hat with a pink feather plume. A shiny dark cobalt blue tunic with gold coloured epaulettes. He has white breeches and long past the knee riding boots. He salutes the viewer.
He perhaps is a military leader or officer who was involved in the Crimean War conflict.
These little figurines would have been prizes at funfairs or perhaps sold by itinerant peddlers who would have little trinkets and ornaments of popular figures of the day or topical news subjects. He would have travelled from village to village selling this sort of item. They were often quite basically made - with simple modelling and paintwork - this one is slightly more elaborate in shape and colour.
Fair price for this pretty equestrian subject. It will be sent in UK with Royal Mail Tracked postage and packed very carefully in a sturdy box. It will be about £4.95 and this will be applied at check out.
