The Grande Villa Classic Bronze Urn is a extraordinary extra large bronze urn. The urn features two elegant handles which span almost 5 feet across. The bowl is over 3 feet in diameter and features a beautiful detailed egg and dart design around the rim and a dart design around the lower half. The urn rests on a flared fluted fillet which rests on a square base. It is extremely well done and it is quite arresting. The craftsmanship is extraordinary. Inspired by French garden artifacts this urn is a terrific focal point to any garden setting inside or outside. Ideally placed on a pedestal base, but large enough to stand alone or in a Pair, this urn is large enough to be an architectural highlight by a formal entrance or indoors in a foyer or formal setting.
The Grande Villa Classic Bronze Urn is cast by the traditional, Lost Wax Bronze Casting method (links to a full description of the method). This labor intensive and time consuming method of casting bronze statues, ensure pristine quality and vivid detail. This Grande Villa Classic Bronze Urn features intricate, hand forged details with a beautiful brown fire-applied patina.
Applying patina to bronze using the French method (fire and heat) is an age old traditional skill requiring expert craftsmanship. Each patina is hand applied and the patination result may vary making each sculpt unique. All bronze statuary will develop a natural patina when left in natures elements. The aged patina on bronzes is often desired, but can be prevented by care and cleaning of the bronze statue by applying beeswax or other polish to prevent a patina from forming.
The Grande Villa Classic Bronze Urn is available in the Classic French Brown Bronze patina as shown.
