Butler and Peach - Miniature Pig in Cold Cast Bronze

A charming miniature pig made by Butler and Peach in solid bronze using the lost wax method. This cute little piggy is looking up expectantly with his curly tail in the air. The adorable little fellow measures 35mm high.

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 pig is perfect for anyone who loves farm animals, particularly pigs. 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.
