The Curator's Eye
This impressive, large sculpture of a horse still retains much of its original white pigment in tact. However, even more impressive, is the removable saddle with engraved details that graces his back. This saddle appears to have once been painted orange and likely would have once supported a sculpted rider. The horses ears stand at attention. Its striking eyes are well defined. Its nostrils are flared and its mouth is open, suggesting the horse has just come to rest after a vigorous journey. These rare features, in particular the open mouth and removable saddle, are highly sought after by collectors.

Renaissance Gemstone Ring, Gold, Ruby, and Enamel
Western Europe, late 16th century to early 17th century. To judge from the number of examples that survive to the present, enameled rings with high box bezels were enormously successful among aristocratic patrons from the second half of the sixteenth century up through the first half of the seventeenth century. The bright green, white, blue, and red enamel on this ring's shoulders is comparable with examples from the late sixteenth century.
