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.
In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
