Silver-gilt horse & jockey
2022/19: An unusual and charming South American SILVER-GILT model of a jockey astride his Arab racehorse, complete with saddle and reins. The jockey, with long stirrups and wearing an old-fashioned peaked cap suggests a date of late 19th or early 20th century. It is mounted on a shallow variegated marble base whilst the integral cast base is marked: "Argentor". Perhaps Mexican or Argentinian? 5.5ins (14 cms) high.
