You probably need to register with Sotheby’s to view the listing.
Here’s what it looks like if you don’t have the proper credentials…
There are two horses like this in the MFA and back when I had time to go once a week and just wander the hallways I ran into them. It was covet at first sight. Of course, with the $200,000-$300,000 estimate, a magnificent example like this one is out of my price range, but I’m still young 🙂
The biggest problem going forward with these for me (aside from getting to be rich, which is already on my agenda) will be fending off interest in Chinese antiquities from the newly rich Chinese themselves. There’s a lot of interest in Chinese art from China these days and with the prospects of that country that trend doesn’t seem like it will slow down any time soon.
Maybe I should have bought some lottery tickets last night to potentially speed up the process.
