Buy antique bronzes from one of the UK's premier furniture dealers. We specialise in antique bronze statues, bronze lamps, bronze sculptures and bronze animals. Here at our North London showroom and warehouse we have an astounding range of bronzes in all shapes and sizes, right up to and including a selection of life-size bronze statues to impress and amaze those who set eyes upon them. We also have a range of bronze fountains and bronze water features for your garden or hotel grounds, parks, or other outdoor landscaped areas.

If it’s a traditional decorative bronze sculpture you are looking for, we can help you there too with our large choice of Art Deco Bronze Sculptures and many other works in bronze coming in and out on a regular basis. Something for your desk perhaps or an impressive bronze centerpiece for your dining table - all can be found on this site or at our premises which are open to the public every week day and on selected Saturdays - see the home page for details.

Here at Regent Antiques we offer a comprehensive range of bronze statues and busts, including some which are life-size or even larger and which may be displayed either indoors or outdoors.

Bronze Sculpture, Bronze Statues & Bronze Busts

The use of bronze for casting sculpture is an old one and one which has changed little over the years. There are still plenty of bronze foundries across the UK, but most often found in and around London.

Bronze is an alloy of Copper (around 80%) and Tin although other elements are often added to give the alloy different qualities.

Bronze is particularly useful for making larger statues as it is not brittle, although its relatively high cost, due mainly to the Copper content, has to be taken into consideration. It is not unheard of for large bronze statues to be stolen and melted down due to the high value of the alloy.

The bronze bust is of course a firm favourite and all of the “usual suspects” are represented from time to time. The Emperor Napoleon, the Duke of Wellington, William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar and a host of other Roman luminaries are all amongst those regularly featured in bronze busts.

Bronze Fountains & Outdoor Bronze Statues

Many of our bronze statues are suitable for use outdoors. Bronze is an alloy that doesn’t rust, as it contains no iron, but it can corrode over time - however this tends to give it an even more attractive patinated appearance which is often sought after by enthusiasts. Bronze then is ideal for use outdoors and is the medium of choice for outdoor and public sculpture in towns and cities all over the world.

With that in mind, we are always pleased to be able to offer statues that would fit in nicely with your garden at home or of course with larger gardens, parks, hotels and larger estates. Many of our pieces have been made - or adapted - for use as fountains and water features so please be sure to ask about those if that is what you are looking for.

A visit to our London showroom would enable you to see several examples of bronze statues that are of a size that could only really be displayed in a large building with high ceilings or outdoors. Everything from horses, horses and riders, large animals such as bears and elephants, Roman gladiators and warriors, and even a life-sized statue of physicist Albert Einstein sitting on a bench have all featured in our inventory from time to time.

Bronzes of animals are particularly popular for outdoor use with the horse or horse and rider being amongst the most popular subjects along with bears and deer. Let's not forget bronze statues of birds though, we always have examples of large bronze statues of birds for our showroom and website visitors to look at including ever popular subjects like eagles, owls and others.

Art Deco Bronze Statues and other Art Deco Bronzes

The Art Deco movement which came to prominence in the 1920s and 1930s was very fond of bronze as a medium for expressing the lovely lines and curves which were so much a part of its ethos.

As a result, there were a number of prominent artists and sculptors who specialised in producing bronze sculptures including Demétre Chiparus, Ferdinand Preiss, Paul Phillipe and many more. We have examples, usually recasts of the original pieces, by all of these well-known Art Deco sculptors in our showroom for you to see.

Bronze Animal Sculptures

Animal sculptures are always popular, for two main reasons: firstly they are popular with those who have a love of animals and birds and who collect a variety of decorative pieces which feature animals in many different styles and materials, secondly, there are those who focus on bronze animal sculpture and we are able to display a large collection ranging from small pieces suitable for the display cabinet, the table top, desk top or sideboard, right up to larger than life-sized bronze horses, bears and other impressive animals which are predominantly used for display outdoors.

Bronze Lamps and Lighting

Although most bronze sculpture is designed to be placed on display and looked at and admired, we do also stock bronze pieces that have been adapted, or were originally designed, to be lamps or light sources of one sort or another. Bronze table lamps, wall lights and other examples are well represented in our showroom but we also usually have larger items of bronze lighting available which may be suitable for use outdoors.

Bronzes are available for a variety of purposes and to suit many different tastes. Please be sure to browse our website regularly as the stock changes almost on a daily basis and the bronze statue you have been looking for is sure to arrive sooner or later, so be sure to request our regular email notifications of new arrivals.

Comprising four pieces, this is a superb set and will grace any interior adding a touch of elegance and class. Condition These antique ormolu wall plaques are in excellent condition. Please refer to the photographs to see for yourself. More About Dresden Porcelain In the early 18th Century, the prince elector of Saxony, King Augustus II, believing in the tales of the alchemists of the time, held the goldsmith Johann Bottger prisoner and demanded that he make gold. Fortunately he was able to save himself by discovering the recipe for porcelain instead. Porcelain had been imported into Europe from China since the 14th century and was highly prized, but no one properly understood its constituents or how to make it in Europe. The King announced to Europe that he would open a a porcelain manufactory in Dresden in 1710, but realising that his secret would be stolen, he opened it instead inside the walls of the nearby Albrechtsburg Castle, where he kept the workmen prisoner. However, by 1720 the secret was leaked and porcelain producers appeared in Vienna and Venice. Dresden adopted the Saxon crossed swords in underglaze blue as their mark. In 1736 they produced their ‘Swan Service’ which, comprising 1,400 pieces is the largest most lavish porcelain service ever created. More About Ormolu Ormolu is the name given to a gilding technique that originally used mercury amalgam to create a gold-coloured veneer on metal objects, particularly brass. The amalgam, containing finely powdered gold would be coated on the object and then burnt off in a kiln leaving behind the gilded surface. Using mercury was banned in the 1830s in France and was replaced with electroplating in more modern times.

Antique Patinated Bronze Equestrian Statue of Bartolomeo Colleoni 1860 19th C

Antique Patinated Bronze Equestrian Statue of Bartolomeo Colleoni 1860 19th C

This is a superb antique patinated bronze Equestrian Statue of Bartolomeo Colleoni, circa 1860 in date.   This stunning patinated bronze statue is after the original Renaissance sculpture which was executed by Andrea del Verrocchio in 1480–88, in Italy. Exactly as in the original, it portrays the commander Bartolomeo Colleoni, who served for a long time under the Republic of Venice, wearing typical battle ready military equipment while riding his horse.    The artist has faithfully replicated the original pose of the horse who is moving with a raised leg and is supported by the other three legs, therefore, conveying a great sense of movement.    The figure of Colleoni himself is extremely life-like as much as to convey the idea of a strong military commander, emanating titanic power and energy.    It is raised on an equally magnificent rectangular bronze and hardwood base with the bronze part being inscribed in Latin ' Bartolomeo Coleono Bergomense Militare' and 'Loane Mavro Et Marino Venerio MCCCCLXXXXV'.     This high-quality hot cast solid bronze was produced by using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.   The craftsmanship is second to none throughout all aspects of this striking bronze which is sure to add an unparalleled touch of class to your home.   Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.

Pair of Large Art Deco Revival Bronze Seated Dogs 20th C

Pair of Large Art Deco Revival Bronze Seated Dogs 20th C

Here we have a very impressive pair of bronze dog statues fashioned in the timeless Art Deco style showing them sitting attentively waiting for the command of their master. Dating from the last quarter of the 20th century these fine pieces show a workmanship second-to-none and would make superb display pieces either indoors on either side of a fireplace or outdoors in a garden. They have been cast using the traditional ‘lost wax’ also known as the ‘cire-perdue’ method. Condition These bronze dog statues are in excellent condition as can be seen from the photographs. Additional Information About The ‘Lost Wax’ Method of Bronze Statue Casting Used by most cultures all around the world, bronze sculptures have been fashioned by this method since at least the 3rd millennium BCE. The technique makes use of a wax model of the piece to be cast, which is coated in plaster or clay to create a mold. The wax is warmed up and drained off once the mold is set. If a hollow bronze statue is called for then the wax model is fabricated around a heat proof kernel. Molten bronze is put into the mold and left to dry. Once the metal has cooled enough, the mold is broken open to expose the bronze statue within. Art Deco or Deco Art Deco is an important aesthetic arts design style that first made an appearance in France in the 1920s, and blossomed throughout the world during the 30s and 40s. It is an eclectic design that mixes traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. The style is often distinguished by vibrant colours, bold geometric shapes, and extravagant ornamentation. Deco appeared from the Interwar period when rapid industrialization was transforming culture. One of its major attributes is an embrace of technology. This distinguishes Deco from the organic themes favored by its precursor Art Nouveau. Historian Bevis Hillier outlined Art Deco as "an assertively modern style... [that] ran to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear; it responded to the demands of the machine and of new material... [and] the requirements of mass production". During its heyday Art Deco exemplified glamour, luxury, exuberance, and faith in social and technological advance.

Antique French Pair Two Tone Gilt Bronze Lidded Urns with Cherub Finials 19th C

Antique French Pair Two-Tone Gilt Bronze Lidded Urns with Cherub Finials 19th C

This is a stunning pair of antique French twin handle two-tone gilt bronze garniture lidded urns, circa 1870 in date. These splendid urns have exquisite cast side handles with beautiful grapes and vine decoration. The ormolu lids feature superb reclining cherubs.   They are superbly cast with continuous scenes of delightful dancing cherubs  and a distinctive goat, above writhen fluted lower bodies and leaf cast circular bases. Goats in art have been associated with the worship of Bacchus (the God of Wine), which explains the appropriateness of the presence of goats in these Neo-Classical style urns' scenes, which indeed bears a distinctive bacchanalian theme.    This high-quality hot cast solid bronze pair of urns were produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.   Each urn comes is raised on a resplendent giltwood and blue velvet stand.   This pair of lidded urns represents timeless elegance and will no doubt receive the maximum amount of attention wherever placed. Condition: In good 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.
