A rare, life-sized bronze equine sculpture is one of the highlights of an auction in Britain next week, and it is expected to fetch up to £10,000.
“The life size colt” is part of a two-day sale at Newbury in Berkshire on March 29 and 30 that features pieces from Borde Hill House in West Sussex, belonging to the Stephenson Clarke family since the late 1800s and being sold by auction house Dreweatts.
Colonel Stephenson R. Clarke was a collector of fine art but more significantly of exotic plants from around the world, which led him to become known as “the greatest amateur horticulturist of the 20th century”.
The life-sized bronze horse is 177cm tall and 284cm long and is from a Cheshire country house. It stands four square on an integral base. It is Lot 675, and is being sold on the second day of Dreweatts Fine Furniture, Sculpture, Carpets, Ceramics and Works of Art auction.
