SOLD

 

A rare early 19th century cast iron chimney ornament in the form of Pegasus. Lightly burnished. Remnants of original black paint.

 

Pegasus is a winged horse, who originates in Greek mythology. He was born from the blood of Medusa, slain by Perseus. The popularity of the European 'Grand Tour' by affluent society in the 18th and early 19th centuries, revived an interest in Greek and Roman antiquity. This new-found inspiration manifested itself in furniture, architecture, jewelry, and interior decoration, which utilised amongst other iconography such mythic symbols as Pegasus.
