Description:

Whether it came from the Colt family coat of arms or from the tale of Alexander the Great's horse, Bucephalus, the image of the rearing colt with two pieces of a broken lance in his front legs and mouth has become synonymous with Colt firearms. This bronze pays homage to that legendary logo in a life-like form, standing atop the famous Colt dome. While it is unsigned, it appears to be the work of Thomas Palmerton, who is known to have created other bronzes of this design. The base is approximately 8 1/4 inches in diameter, and it stands approximately 13 1/2 inches tall to the top of the horses head. Provenance: The Don and Carol Wilkerson Collection

Rating Definition:
