Butler and Peach - Miniature Pair of Rutting Stags in Cold Cast Bronze

This charming miniature pair of rutting stags is made by Butler and Peach in solid bronze using the lost wax method. These bronze figures capture the movement of two majestic stags during the rutting season with their antlers locked in battle. In the UK, most stags rut in the autumn with the most intense activity taking place just after dawn.  This small sculpture is 30mm high with each stag measuring 55mm long.

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 pair of rutting stags is perfect for anyone who loves British wildlife, particularly deer or stags. 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.
