Offered here is a wonderful OLD Oriental cinnabar lacquerware horse. He is very large and makes a very dramatic design statement. The satiny mellow red orange cinnabar surface is carved with ornate designs and coat pattern. This is a very heavy piece, weighing approx.
I do not know the age of this piece but it has to be at least 30 to 50 plus years old and may be much older. 32 inches to his top knot and approx.
35 inches from nose to tail. I put a soda can in one photo for size comparison. He is the size of a large dog you might say. The late woman's daughter said her mother had owned this for a long time. Living in the California gold country we have many Chinese items brought here by the families of immigrants who came to work the gold fields.Our town has an old China Town as well as a Bok Kai Temple. His condition is good with a few minor nicks and scuffs here and there, mostly on his hooves, with one slightly larger on his lip. He is a bit dusty in the photos, sorry about that. I was hesitant to do much besides wipe with a soft damp cloth. I'm sure this could go by truck blanket wrapped or perhaps in a heavy cardboard custom box.
We described the item to the best of our abilities! Please refer to the many pictures and ask questions if in doubt or more info is needed. My two sisters and I are all downsizing significantly as well as sorting out our parent's estate so keep watch here for lots of new listings from us!
