I bought this BEAUUUTIFUL pewter Shire Horse from the eBay Seller – sea-eagle 1, a great Seller, with beautiful sculptures and figurines for sale – Collectables, Dolls & Toys. Have a look at their porcelain Ladies and their Sherratt & Simpson animals for sale.
It is quite heavy and in mint condition, a stunning old, long retired original Wildlife Sculpture, circa 1980s. The Horse ia approx. 3 3/4 inches long by 1 1/4 inches wide x 3 1/2 inches high. The Horse was packaged very well indeed, with special “puffy” padding and in a box with extra packaging material. I was so excited when I got it and even kept the stamps on it.
This horse of course reminds me of Bill, the Shire pony in the “Lord of the Rings”. I havent’ named my horse yet, but think it will be a lady’s name, when I do.
Royal Hampshire Foundry is well known for its pewter military figures, but it also manufactured some wildlife sculptures. Alan Haig has the Kingfisher avaiable at the time of posting this. He had a Squirrel, which was also VERY cute, but that has Sold !!
