Perhaps the most interesting segment of the model horse genre are the older European
porcelains.  Many were sculpted in a time when breeds were far different than they are today
and when horses were more utilitarian. Often they are stylized representations of what was
considered the noblest of animals. They are often more works of art than accurate
representations, although many sculptures were highly detailed.
Some of the most wonderful sculptors who worked in this time were:
