These little artworks had a privileged location on the best english homes during the XIX century, accompanied the nobles on their journeys and the senior offices in their campaigns. They were extremely useful and also a sign of distinction.

Take this opportunity. The current global economic situation has made this type of works have a bargain price when valuing the wood they are made of, their age and their perfect finish. But this situation will no longer last as probably soon  these works will reach again the prices they used to have.
