Butler and Peach - Miniature Labrador with Lead in Cold Cast Bronze

This charming miniature labrador holding a lead is made by Butler and Peach in solid bronze using the lost wax method. The bronze labrador is sitting holding his lead in his mouth and looking appealing. If you know labradors, you will definitely recognise this look! Labradors are the most popular breed of pet dog in the UK and this is no accident. They make wonderful family pets and are gentle around children, not to mention their abundant talents as a guide dog for the blind or a gun dog. This small sculpture is 35mm high and encapsulates the charm and loyalty of this wonderful breed of dog.

Each minature bronze by Butler and Peach is presented in an elegant box with pouch and authentication certificate making it a stunning gift. This minature labrador with lead is perfect for anyone who has ever owned or loved a pet labrador. 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.
