Bone China Optime Arabian Horse Custom Glazed By Karen Gerhardt - Mint For Sale
This is the Bone China “Optime” Arabian Stallion, sculpted and glazed by Karen Gerhardt, in a unique one-of-a-kind color.
“Optime” is a stunning Arabian Stallion model, and easily recognizable in the model horse hobby. This is a one-of-a-kind rose grey color, and I truly believe it is one of the nicest colors that Karen did on this model (certainly my favorite of all that she has done!). He's amazing, with realistic coloring/shadings, and packed full of fine detailing. Glossy finish.
He is about large Classic sized - measuring about 7" tall, by 9" long. He is in Mint Condition. I only showed him twice at live shows, and that was several years ago. Both times, he won Reserve Champ of the china division, and was NAN qualified (but was never shown at the NAN championship show).
Absolutely Mint, with very fine mold detail. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity! Karen does very few chinas these days, is no longer casting any of her chinas in Bone China (she is using earthenware ceramic, which is not as durable as bone china).
Starting offer is very low (far below original cost), with !
My photos don't do him justice. He can be hard to photograph because of his turned head. He looks much nicer in person than in my photos, with amazing shadings! Any white marks in the photos are glare from his glossy finish, and my photography, and are not flaws on the model, itself.
