Once found adorning the side of a French stable, this rare cast iron horse head is from circa 1880. The horse bust protrudes from the center of an oval center of a foliate shield. Both the top and the bottom of the escutcheon are adorned with leaf margents, while the sides feature large, curled leaves. There are two holes on each side for attachment purposes. Perfect for any animal lover, the cast iron horse head can be hung indoors as a decorative accessory or affixed to an exterior wall as an architectural. It retains its wonderful, original patina.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with fleabites and buildup. Sections of the horse’s face and surrounding iron have developed a warm yellow patina.
