Story Behind the Art: This hand-crafted item and many others come from a third generation family run workshop in mainland China. Their skills of hand-painting, hand-rubbed lacquering and hand-tooling have been passed down for many generations. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations. Many of the artists are hired out of semi-retirement to work from home training the next generation to become master craftsmen. These masters are highly respected in their craft and their culture which have survived through many Chinese dynasties and continue to produce valuable and desirable pieces for your home decor.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
This statue is very poorly executed. The workmanship is very sloppy. It also arrived very dirty and dusty. I was insulted to think that I paid over $** for it. It had been intended as a gift but I wouldn't give this to anyone. Returned immediately.
If you are thinking National Velvet, find a different horse. If you want a Chinese antique looking horse that might have been unearthed or worked to unearth something else, this is it. Great for texture and interest.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Maybe a bit less green but pretty close
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good
