Bronze, brown patina.
This fine bronze equestrian group is thought to represent the 1862 Derby Winner, Caractacus. The wax model was first exhibited at the Salon of 1863, with a bronze version following a year later. It was listed in Mêne's catalogue as number 16 under the title 'Jockey à cheval' and was edited in two sizes, the present cast being an example of the larger version.
