English 19th Century Cast Iron Unicorn

$1,500

About

A large, cast iron unicorn, from 19th century England. Unicorns are a common motif used in British and Scottish works. A free unicorn, according to legend, is considered to be a wild and dangerous creature. This unicorn is tame, harmless and eager to guard your door, as it would make an impressive door stop. Great detail can be seen in the creature’s mane, head, and musculature, with exceptional patina enveloping the iron beast.
