English Bronze Polo Player & Horse Casting Statue

You are viewing a fine English bronze casting depicting a polo player in full swing astride his horse. The energy and dynamism of the piece is what attracted us to this great work of art. We came across this at a dealer we know in Bath whilst  on a buying trip in the West Country.

The player is depicted swinging his stick just about to hit the ball with the horse at a mild cantor. We cannot find a signature to the piece but whoever the artist was has really caught the moment with skill. The patina to the bronze has a lovely lustre and at different parts the tone varies. The piece is offered in very good condition. It is ready for home decorative use right away and this will take centre stage as a show piece. Perfect for polo fans and collectors.

Polo can be traced to origins in Manipur state, India, about 300 bc when it was played as Sagol Kangjei. It is also claimed to be of Persian origin having been played as Pulu (which means “willow root”) about 525 bc. In the course of centuries it spread to other countries including Tibet, China, India, and Japan, where a special form of it called dakyu evolved in the 8th century ad. By the 16th century it had become particularly popular in India. During the 1850s British army officers in India learnt how to play it, and the earliest polo club of the modern era was the Cachar Club, founded in Assam in 1859. It was first played in England in 1869 by cavalry officers of the Tenth Hussars, and in the United States in 1876. The governing body is the Hurlingham Polo Association, London. Hurlingham first staged a match in 1874 and the club committee first drew up a set of British rules in 1875.

Pair English Lifesize Bronze Lions > Landseer Lion

You are viewing an impressive pair of nearly lifesize English bronze lions. I hope the photos do this stunning pair some justice, they’re certainly more impressive in the flesh. The lions remind us of the famous ones found in Trafalgar square by Edward Landseer. The casting is of the highest quality and the patina to the bronze has a lovely dark nutty brown finish to it. Details like the mane are particularly worthy of detail, as the lions locks flow. The face is also very expressionistic and the artist has really caught the creatures character and power with skill. These would make a great decorative piece for your home or garden. Being bronze these would of course be able to live outside with no fear of rusting and would make excellent gatekeepers either side of your driveway or entrance. They are both offered in perfect condition ready for use right away. We bought these from an architectural salvage firm in Islington, North London.
