c. 1900
$4,880 SOLD

This handsome pair of lacquerware horses was made over a century ago in China’s Fujian province. For thousands of years, horses have been one of the most popular animals in Chinese art, and were equated with virtue and talent. In ancient times the horse was considered related to dragons—they supposedly were equipped with imaginary powers, and would carry a person’s soul after death.
