This is a magnificent antique pair of Neoclassical gilt-bronze and marble mantel urns, circa 1850 in date.

This stunning pair of gilt-bronze urns are of delightful saucer shape, featuring splendid beaded borders and gorgeous acanthus cast socles. The details are extraordinary - the beading and the high reliefs of the foliate decoration, make this pair of bronze urns a virtuoso piece of workmanship.

This high-quality hot cast solid bronze urns were produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.

They stand on sumptuous Sienna marble plinths, standing tall upright with beautiful square plinths. They are further embellished by splendid bronze foliate decorations, which add a touch of refinement to this splendid pair. 

The craftsmanship is second to none throughout all aspects of this pair and they are sure to add an unparalleled touch of class to your home.


Condition:

In excellent condition. As antique items, the pieces show signs of use commensurate with age, these minor condition issues are mentioned for accuracy and, as seen in the accompanying photographs, the urns display beautifully.

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.
