Beautiful white ceramic figurine of Chinese Year of the Horse from the Chinese Zodiac. Horse figurine measures 4-1/4 inches tall, 3 1/2 inches wide and 2 inches thick. All ceramic figurines are porcelain figurines. If a ceramic figurine is made of clay that is not porcelain slip, it is technically called a terra cotta figurine.
This is the most desirable and collectible figurines from the Chinese Zodiac. Maybe it is indicative of humanity's love of horses. Fired clay figurines were found in Europe dating back to 30,000 BC. Maybe more babies were born during horse years, i.e., 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, etc. The second most collectable figurine is the Year of the Ram statue figurine.
White porcelain figurine was made in the USA.
