Pair of Dutch Bronze Statuettes of Hunters

Price: Price on request

Offered by Kollenburg Antiquairs BV




A pair of bronze figures representing course hunters. One courser is stabbing with his spear, the other is probably a horn blower.
In the early eighteenth century coursing for large game, like wild boar, bears, and deer, was very popular among Dutch nobility. As a matter of fact, this type of hunt, known as ‘parforce’ was a privilege of the Dutch elite. The average hunting party consists of horsemen, followers on foot, and a pack of Greyhounds.
