Pair of antique bronze Cranes

ANTIQUES AND DECORATIVE
Delightful pair of circa 1900, possibly a little earlier or slightly later, bronze Cranes. I believe they are original to each other as the both have the same metal ties to their legs which would have presumably secured them to something, the colouring would suggest they have been together and the quality and styling is the same. The patina is just perfect, exactly what you want to see on an antique pair of bronzes made for the garden.

Bronze is a wonderful material, hardy and strong, and over time weathers to a stunning verdigris green / blue. The detailing is excellent and the casting crisp which shows they were made by a skilled craftsman. It is lovely to find a pair that were made to go together, but which are standing in different poses. They are both in overall very good condition. The taller has a very tiny piece missing at the tip of it's beak (as can be seen in one of the pictures), but it doesn't spoil the piece at all. The smaller one has a very small hole in the top of the neck area, but is so indiscernible as to virtually not be noticed and I am only doing so as I like to be very honest about the things I sell, but given their age, these are in as good a condition and colour as you would want to find. Perfect for the garden, but also ideal as interior sculpture pieces. They could be separated for display and placed where a viewer might not expect to come upon them, providing a pleasant surprise.

Dimensions:
82cm Tall
62cm Tall

Bronze has always been a highly prized medium for sculpture and statuary due to it workability (it can pick up from the mould the finest detail) for the sculptor and it's longevity for the owner. It has always been associated with the Arts and it's appeal is wide.
