Butler and Peach - Miniature Hedgehog in Cold Cast Bronze

A charming miniature hedgehog by Butler and Peach made in solid bronze using the lost wax method. This hedgehog has its nose in the air and is probably foraging for food. This spiny mammal is endangered in the UK. If you are lucky enough to have hedgehogs nest in your garden do not disturb! This detailed little sculpture is 35mm high and captures the personality of these lovely creatures.

Each minature bronze by Butler and Peach is presented in an elegant box with pouch and authentication certificate making it a stunning gift. This bronze hedgehog is adorable and perfect for those that admire British wildlife, particularly hedgehogs. These bronze pieces are easy to keep clean, just buff with a soft cloth or brush.

The lost-wax process, also called “cire-perdue” is a method of metal casting where a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created using a wax model. Once the mold is made, the wax model is melted and drained away. A hollow core can be created by introducing a heat-proof core that prevents the molten metal from totally filling the mold. The lost-wax method dates from the 3rd millennium BC and has changed very little since then.
