Luxury Design, Past & Present
Besides the heavily reduced figural depictions of female bodies, sculptures of animals were a common addition to the inventory of the Werkstatte Hagenauer. Motives of horses were a successful and popular addition in the program of the Viennese manufacture.
This figurine of a horse excels with an extraordinary dynamic and the use of precious wood along with metal on a singlepiece. With the help of a reduced shape and the usage of patinated brass for the mane and the tail, a true-to-life creation of a majestic animal is being created.
