Rated 3 out of 5 by TraceWalker Quality not as expected
I love Asian art--its intricate details, colors, and subject matter. I have many objet d'art proudly displayed throughout my home, including antiques, authentic Geisha figurines, cast iron horses, various bowls, and art prints. I was debating which horse to purchase of the coupleToscano offered, and I finally decided on this one. I was excited to get it (which came amazingly fast), but disappointed when I opened up the wonderful packaging. On two places around the horse's hooves, styrofoam packing, or some other white material, had stuck onto the statue and I had to carefully scrap it off, worrying I might mar the finish. The variations in color were not as shown in the photograph. Instead of distinct golds, bronze, and other shades showing dimension, it is more just a blase-looking combination of beiges and browns, with the base the same dark brown color as the rest of the horse, including its hooves, so it's a far cry from mimicing ebony. I wanted to return it, but didn't want to spend the time and money it would take me to do so. It's taken me over a week to find somewhere to put it, as it really doesn't look authentic next to other items on display. I've been happy with other purchases from Toscano in the past, but I hadn't purchased any of their "designer resin with faux ebony base" items. I was planning to buy more items, but since many are made by this same process, I'm skeptical as to whether or not the quality would be as expected.

I WOULD BUY MORE IN THIS PRICE RANGE. IT LOOKS AS GOOD AS ANY EXPENSIVE STATUE OF A CHINESE HORSE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marie28 Nice rich look
I bought two of these for my home office that's done up in an Asian theme. They help give my office that warm, sophisticated feel and look I wanted. And take my imagination to far east Asia every time I enter my office.

I bought two of these horses for my home office. And they go perfect with my Asian decor. I love the aged and expensive look they has. They help give my office that rich look I wanted.
