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 Large Bronze Sculpture Fountain of Classical Lady with Amphora 20th C

Vintage Large Bronze Sculpture Fountain of Classical Lady with Amphora 20th C

This is a wonderful and high-quality solid bronze sculpture and fountain in the form of a delightfull Neo-Classical lady holding an amphora, from the last quarter of the 20th century. This beautiful large bronze statue features a composed lady dressed in Neo-Classical attire with a long vest and holding an amphora with both her arms on top of her right-hand shoulder. If required it can be connected to the water supply and water will spill out of the amphora. There is unspeakable beauty in the whole pose, which is full of dignity. Her face slightly turned downward with her eyes closed, her left-hand arm placed above her head in the act of aiding the other arm in supporting the amphora. It is difficult to think of this work as a lifeless bronze - it seems indeed to move in front of our eyes, and yet to remain at rest.     It stands against a tall rectangular vertical bronze column, which looks perfect when being placed against a wall.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            This high-quality hot cast solid bronze was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method. Without a doubt, it will attract lots of attention wherever placed.   Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.

More About Ormolu Ormolu is another term for gilded brass produced using a process that used mercury nitrate and mercury amalgam to coat a bronze or other metal surface with finely powdered gold. Once the object had been coated with the amalgam it was fired in a kiln at very high temperatures and the mercury would burn off leaving a gold coloured gilt veneer. No true ormolu has been produced since the 1830s when the use of mercury was banned in France due to its toxicity. More modern methods include using electroplating to gild bronze.

Venus by Botticelli Lage Bronze Sculpture

Venus by Botticelli Lage Bronze Sculpture

This wonderful bronze statue depicts the goddess Venus emerging from the sea as a fully grown woman modelled on the famous painting by Botticelli. He painted it in 1486 and it has gone on to become one of the most iconic paintings of all time, representing the flourishing of the new artistic aesthetic of the Renaissance. The detailing is superb and it was made using the traditional ‘lost wax’ method. Condition As can be seen from the photographs, this bronze statue of Venus is in excellent condition. More About The ‘Lost Wax’ Technique of Bronze Statue Casting Used by most societies all over the globe, bronze sculptures have been manufactured by this means since at least the 3rd millennium BCE. The procedure 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 heated and drained off once the mold is set. If a hollow bronze statue is required then the wax model is manufactured around a heat proof core. Molten bronze is poured into the mold and left to set. Once the metal has cooled enough, the mold is broken open to show the bronze statue inside.
