Pair of Signed French Gilt Bronze Marley Horses

About

This is a pair of French Marley horses with the grooms and the base, which simulates an earthen ground, all decorated in a fantastic gilding. Rarely does this famous subject come in two tones and especially not partially gilt as this pair boasts. Each of the sculptures are signed on the base "Coustou" after Guillaume Coustou (1677-1746) who produced the original Malrey horses. This is a fine example of a very popular and familiar subject. This group of statues originally placed in Marley Park later decorated the entrance to the Champs-Élysées in Paris before being moved to the Louvre Museum in 1984; copies of the statues are located at Marly and the Place de la Concorde.
