An oval base adorned with plastic flowers and lush foliage, supported by a tree trunk. A young gentleman seated on a horse, dressed in a rose-colored parade uniform with delicate yellow accents and gold embellishments, holding the reins in his left hand and saluting with his raised right hand. Hanging on the sides are drum-like vessels with rounded shapes. Polychrome painting with gold trim. Possibly by Johann Joachim Kaendler, around 1755. Condition uncertain; sword mark. Height: 19 cm.

Here, the horse's drums are depicted as small vessels. See Adams, Kaendler period, No. 205; Berling, Festschrift, Fig. 45 (similar). A rare porcelain figure of a soldier on horseback.
