Robb Report Singapore - - Grand Openings - By AARON DE SILVA

Horses are ad­mired for their strength, agility and en­durance. Among the most prized breeds is the Ara­bian horse, which has a dis­tinc­tive head shape and high tail car­riage. It is also cel­e­brated for its live­li­ness, mak­ing it one of the most val­ued breeds in eques­trian com­pe­ti­tions.

Christofle’s Ara­bian Pranc­ing Horse is de­signed by sculp­tor Al­li­son Hawkes, who has col­lab­o­rated with the French sil­ver­smith since 2009. Cast in ster­ling sil­ver, and re­quir­ing 25 man-hours of work to com­plete, the sleek and mus­cu­lar stal­lion is de­picted in a dy­namic rear­ing po­si­tion, a strik­ing man­i­fes­ta­tion of the qual­i­ties for which the breed is lauded.

The sculp­ture is pre­sented on a brass stand with a black patina fin­ish. Only 20 ex­am­ples ex­ist world­wide, with this par­tic­u­lar piece be­ing num­bered 08/20. Gift must be pur­chased by 31 Jan­uary 2017. Please email ul­ti­mate­gift­guide@imv. com.sg for en­quiries and to pur­chase. Visit rob­bre­port.com.sg or rob­bre­port. com.my for more details. ≠
