Saint George and the Dragon


polychromed terracotta

43cm., 17in. (including lance)

Overall the condition is good, with some wear and dirt to the surface consistent with age. There are a few restored breaks, most of them concealed by polychromy, including at the terrasse, and the man's proper right elbow; there are also stable joints visible around the dragon's neck and the horse's legs. There are a few minor stable hairline cracks, consistent with the material. There is wear to the polychromy, including flaking and some areas of loss, in particular at the high points. A few chips, including to the horse's and dragon's ears. The horse's tail appears to be composed of painted animal hair or fabric.
