Finely detailed right down to the little hoof prints in the clouds and a very nice patina. Reins have been replaced. Detachable wreath cane. Stunning, beautiful lady in a flowing robe riding a chariot with a daisy on the front and two rearing horses. Very ornate and in high relief. There are lion skin pelts on the backs of the horses and an eagle head on the end of the staff running between the horses. The bottom has a black enameled steel plate. There is a lot of wear and scratching to the bottom steel plate but overall condition for its age is good. Rare find!

The only foundry makers mark I find is on the lower right hand side of the metal base which looks like a little daisy stem flower in raised relief. possible Mednat which would make it french

A quadriga (Latin quadri-, four, and iugum, yoke) is a car or chariot drawn by four horses abreast (the Roman Empire's equivalent of Ancient Greek tethrippon). It was raced in the Ancient Olympic Games and other contests. It is represented in profile as the chariot of gods and heroes on Greek vases and in bas-relief. The quadriga was adopted in ancient Roman chariot racing. Quadrigas were emblems of triumph; Victory and Fame often are depicted as the triumphant woman driving it. In classical mythology, the quadriga is the chariot of the gods; Apollo was depicted driving his quadriga across the heavens and clouds, delivering daylight and dispersing the night.
