Good morning,My name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.This is a copy of "Le Grand Jockey," after Isidore Jules Bonheur (French 1827-1901).The original was cast in 1860. Subsequently, the molds were purchased, and it's been re-cast pretty constantly since then.This would not be an original cast, it appears to be more "in the style of," as a number of the small details are different. (The way the hand grasps the reins, the texturing on the horse's coat and the base, the position of the booted foot, and a few other details.) It also doesn't contain the signature (according to you) "L. Bonheur," which would be on all originals and recasts from the original mold.Are you looking for a retail value, for insurance purposes, or a possible resale value?Jennifer
