Sculpture, Napoleon on horseback - spelter / rule - Late 19th century
France

Beautiful heavily detailed antique sculpture of Napoleon in his well-known pose on a horse.

The sculpture was probably made late 19th century in France. Considering the age in fair condition. The patina is worn here and there; There may be small parts missing, however, as far as I can judge, the sculpture is complete.

Napoleon Bonaparte (Ajaccio, 15 August 1769 - Saint Helena, 5 May 1821) was a French general and dictator during the last governments of the French revolution. As Napoleon I, he was the French emperor from 2 December 1804 until 11 April 1814.

From 17 March 1805 until 11 April 1814, he was also king of Italy, a state that didn’t contain all of the Italian peninsula. He was also the protector of the Confederation of the Rhine from 1806 until 1813. His legislative reforms, the Code Napoléon, had great and lasting influence on the legal system in many countries, amongst others, in The Netherlands and Belgium.
