I have not seen this motif before and find it fascinating. It is very well-detailed with what looks like a nobleman on a rearing horse over an emaciated beggar. The top flourishes are on front and back. The cartouche is well-detailed as well. The nobleman is dressed lavishly, with a very large hat. He is quite dapper, and even has a moustache.
Size: 9 1/16" long.
Condition: The overall condition is as you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners.
