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.

Vintage Life Size Bronze Roman Armoured Cavalry Officer on Horseback 20th C

Vintage Life Size Bronze Roman Armoured Cavalry Officer on Horseback 20th C

This large and impressive piece is an ornately decorated life size bronze sculpture of a heavily armored Roman Cavalry officer mounted on horseback. It would certainly not be an exaggeration to describe this life size bronze sculpture as “impressive”. Quite apart from its sheer size, the subject matter would always demand a second look, even at a smaller scale. Dressed to impress, the Roman Cavalry officer depicted in this piece is wearing armour that is decorated in high relief including symbols depicting angelic maidens as well as a wide range of phoenixes, goblins, wolfs, winged horses and, of course, eagles. Perhaps the most impressive feature of the warrior’s uniform is the cavalry parade helmet which has an eagle and feathered crest. Such details are nice but it is the overall impact of this work being of such an impressive size that is the real show stopper here. This life size bronze statue of a Roman Officer really does stop you in your tracks when you encounter it for the first time. Condition We are delighted to be able to offer this bronze sculpture for sale in really superb condition. It is a major piece of work and you should be sure to check out the photographs to satisfy yourself as to its condition.

The family was extremely poor and Charlie and his brother Sydney spent spells in the workhouse as their mother’s health declined. Chaplin was determined to go on the stage and eventually managed to find professional work in various troupes. It was when one of these troupes toured the United States that Chaplin caught the eye of a film producer and was signed up and made his first film debut in 1914 in a forgettable one-reeler.

Vintage Bronze Heron Sculptural Pond Fountain 20th Century

Vintage Bronze Heron Sculptural Pond Fountain 20th Century

This is a fantastic bronze garden water feature statue. It is a fountain featuring two large bronze herons standing on a log and dates from the late 20th century. This is a large bronze garden water feature statue standing at 206 cm (6 feet, 9 inches), showing two magnificently detailed herons standing on a log. Contrasting green and brown patina has been used to brilliant effect with lots of intricate detailing ensuring the lifelike nature of this wonderful bronze garden fountain statue. Sculpted in the Victorian style, this bronze garden water feature is a fountain with water flowing out from nozzles in the breaks of the herons and one from the top of the tree trunk. Cast from solid bronze, it was made by the traditional lost wax (cire perdue) method. This gorgeous bronze garden water feature can be used as a stand-alone fountain or as the centrepiece in a pond. We have more bronzes to impress you with here. It is in superb condition as can be seen from the photographs in our gallery. Please do take a few moments to look at these to satisfy yourself on the condition of this bronze pond fountain. You will also be able to see the fabulous design and detailing that has gone into this spectacular bronze garden water feature statue. The lost wax method or ‘cire perdue’ as it is known in French, is a traditional method that dates back at least five thousand years. The method enables casting of bronze (and other metal) sculptures, statues and objects with the finest detail. It works by creating a model of the object to be cast in wax or other suitable material. A mould is then made from this and coated on the inside with a layer of wax to the desired thickness of the metal required for the object being cast. Suitable vents and a pour hole are also inserted into the mould and wax layer so that gases can escape and so the molten metal can be poured into it. The remaining internal space of the mould is filled with a heat proof material and the whole assembly is baked in a kiln. The wax melts and runs off and the molten bronze is then poured into the space left behind and left to cool. Once the metal is cold the mould and inner material is removed leaving a perfect replica of the original model. The mould can be reused (depending on the quality of the material) to create further castings. This it the method that was used to produce this fantastic bronze garden water feature and it bears testament to the very fine and intricate detailing that can be achieved. Viewing This Bronze Garden Water Feature Statue In Person We think it's a good option to browse articles personally. Being mindful of this please try to travel to our North London showroom to view this bronze garden water feature statue, along with the broad selection of other bronze garden statues and fountains we have in stock.

Vintage Bronze Panther Sculpture on a Marble Base 20th C

Vintage Bronze Panther Sculpture on a Marble Base 20th C

The piece blends the beauty and grace of such a noble creature as he calmly awaits the appearance of his next meal, with the ornamental value of such a setting, especially when the bronze is placed on display in a suitable situation. Visitors and guests will definitely find this bronze panther statue to be of interest and it will no question become a talking point. This bronze delivers a real punch that is not due to its size but rather the drama of the posture blended with some very fine modelling on the part of the artist.
