In December, 2007, Sotheby's sold similar horse and rider from the Noortman Collection.
The pieces had been in the home of Robert and Angelique Noortman when they lived in Chateau de Groote Mot in Belgium, one of the oldest vineyards in Belgium.
Sotheby's estimate for the 2 pieces had been close to $30,000.... sold for over $100,000!
