Howard made this rare form, which does not appear on its wholesale price list, in different sizes; the largest known example sold in these rooms, January 27, 1990 from the Bernard M. Barenholtz Collection (lot 1515), and measures 42 in. by 41 1/4  in. The vane was intended to depict a formally attired dressage rider and his mount; this intent is made clear in a few examples, with and without the rider, that present the horse rearing back on its hind legs in a classical dressage position known as levade. In this small example, the horse's repousse mane matches the dressy elegance of its rider's top hat and suit.
