Description
An antique ceramic figurine of a Horse and Jockey, amongst many other animals and birds, that adorn the rooftops in Deauville, Calvados region, Normandy. These 'épis de faitage' as they are known, (in English, Finials), can be found all over Deauville. The horse and jockey finial is appropriate to Deauville as it is a centre for thoroughbred horse racing, with 2 race tracks, Deauville La Touques and Deauville Clarefontaine. The area surrounding Deauville also supports France’s primary bloodstock breeding industry. These finial decorations date back centuries and can be seen and identified in the Bayeux Tapestry.
