Eclipse after Stubbs

Hallmarked silver with silver plaque

Limited edition of 12

18 x 7 x 7cms

This small bust was sculpted after George Stubbs paintings of Eclipse (1764-1789). Eclipse ran in 18 races and was unbeaten. His dominance soon meant that no owners would put their horses to run against him and Eclipse was sent to stud. It is estimated that he contributed to 80% of today's thoroughbreds and more than a hundred of his descendants have won the Derby.
