About this item

This is a lovely pair of bronze pelicans with fabulous Verdigris patina, dating from the second half of the 20th century.

The attention to detail is absolutely fantastic - the elongated beaks, plumage, and webbed feet all appear extremely lifelike. 

These beautiful pelicans would make fabulous indoor (perhaps on either side of a fireplace) or outdoor (perhaps in a garden or on either side of a door) display pieces.

These high quality bronzes are hot cast using the 'lost wax' otherwise known as the 'cire perdue' process.

Lost Wax Method
sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artists sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
