The del Prado figure represents un cacciatore a cavallo della Guardia imperial wearing service dress. On campaign, the richly decorated sabretache was replaced con a simpler version made of plain black leather. The expensive pelisse is reported to have been worn in the Battle of Austerlitz, but it was not taken into the field in later years. The green trousers ungheresi of the service dress were normally protected by green coveralls during marches ed on campaign, although the figure pictured here is not wearing them.
Il cacciatore a cavallo is portrayed at the halt, con his carbine at the ready, possibly acting as a personal escort of the Imperatore e his stato maggiore, o an officer on reconnaissance duty. The figure may be displayed in Dioramas con Napoleon e members of his staff. Painted in different colours, the cacciatore a cavallo may be used as an elite trooper of ussari francesi o one of the German reggimenti di ussari of the Confederation of the Rhine.
Horse e rider are anatomically correct.
The figure is shown wearing the service dress of the Cacciatori a Cavallo della Guardia imperiale, without pelisse, con the plain black sabretache, but con red over green plume on the colpack.
