A delightful image of the Princes Regent's horse 'Spangle'. Originally appeared as an illustration in 'The Sporting Magazine' of April 1811 where the text indicated his sire was a brother to 'Cinnabar' and that 'Spangle' was a "horse of great beauty, a bright bay with white spots, and not more remarkable for his colour than for his excellence as a hunter; hence his portrait is a fit subject for the delineation of the painter and equally so for the graphic ingenuity of the engraver".
A super small, decorative period picture.
