The Quarter horse is an American breed of horse that excels at sprinting short distances. Its name comes from its ability to outdistance other horse breeds in races of a quarter mile or less. Glazed porcelain. The saddle is made in matte porcelain with platinum luster and golden accents.
Lladro has faithfully reproduced a Quarter Horse, a breed created in the USA from a mix of Arabian, Morgan and even Standard bred bloodlines. It is especially apt for running quarter mile races. It has a well-proportioned head and neck, a strong, broad and powerful body. They are strong, highly resistant horses, relatively short but very powerful, combining the speed of a hot blood with the stamina of a cold blood.
Lladro has a long-standing tradition in the art of sculpting horses and, in fact, the sculptor of this piece is a connoisseur of horses. The combination of experience and mastery ensures that Quarter Horse is modeled and decorated to perfection. The gloss finish then further enhances its musculature. Worth underscoring is the saddle, decorated with silver luster and touches of golden luster. Some quarter horses have one or more white legs and hooves, and this fact has also been taken into account by the sculptor.
Staying true to the features of Quarter Horse, Lladro has depicted it in porcelain with its unique forms, decoration and finish. A piece worthy of the admiration of horse lovers and collectors. It is a short limited series, a fact that increases its value given that only 300 people will have the good fortune of owning this sculpture. Limited edition of 300 - Base included 16.5in H x 20in L
