19th Century Articulated Artist Horse Model and Rider

Discovered this museum quality 19th century articulated wooden horse artist model with rider in Paris.
Both painters and sculptors used such models in their work.

                                                                   Frontal View in Paris

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!
