This is a handsome pair of bronze stags, bearing the replica signature of well known French sculptor Jules Moigniez, from the last quarter of the 20th century.

The stags are made of bronze by the lost wax process, and their gorgeous marble bases are black in colour. These stags appear tentative as they stand cautiously on a rocky outcrop.  Their impressive antlers demand attention.

Placed together or apart this pair will make a striking addition to any setting and make a fine collector’s item.

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 artist's 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.

Jules Moigniez (1835 - 1894) - was born in Senlis, France. His most plentiful subjects were game birds, but he sculptured dogs, horses, and a few equestrian groups. Moigniez's first recorded exhibit was in Paris at the Exposition Universalle of 1855 where he exhibited a plaster titled Pointer stopping at the Pheasant. he exhibited regularly at the annual salons from 1859 until 1892 showing  total of thirty works. He also exhibited in London at the London International Exhibition in 1862.

Most of Moigniez's bronzes were cast by his farther, who was a metal gilder by training. Their foundry was established in 1857 solely for the purpose of producing Moigniez's bronzes. Many of Moigniez's bronzes were gilded, silver-plated, or had very different or unusual patinas applied to them as Moigniezs were constantly experimenting with new finishes.

In 1869 Jules Moigniez became ill and never recovered. He produced no new models from that date and in 1894 took his own life. Moigniez's father kept casting his son's works after his tragic death until he was alive. 

Today Moigniez's bronzes are very collectable and can reach thousands of pounds at auctions.
