After Coustou Pair late 19thc bronze Marly horses
A stunning pair of late 19thc bronze Marly horses after Coustou. Standing just over 45cm these are a fine and impressive pair of bronzes in great condition with excellent patination - a real statement piece. Each piece is signed clearly 'coustou' The original, larger than life, pair of hourses were carved in marble by Guillaume Coustou in 1739-45 for the horse pond of Louis XVs chateau at Marley-le-Roi and were inspired by the colossal pair of Horse Tamers in Rome which were copied from the Greek originals. They were moved to the entrance of the Champs Elysees after the Revolution in 1794.
