    This horse statuette fascinates with its sweeping head turned backwards. The dynamic lines and strong stylization of the sculpture, dating from around 1930, clearly show the signature of Werkstatte Hagenauer. The finely worked nostrils and the waving tail are remarkably beautiful details. With its slender body and graceful head, the little horse could be a mythical creature as well.
    The playful details, such as the stylized mane, reveal the influence of Dagobert Peche, whose inexhaustible imagination was an important stimulus for all Viennese decorative arts in the first decades of the 20th century.
    Its strong resemblance to documented designs by Karl Hagenauer speaks for the authorship of Karl Hagenauer. Unlike horse figures made of cast brass only, the execution with its attached and soldered horse legs is unusual and suggests that this could be a prototype or cast model for a statuette.
