Butler and Peach - Miniature Running Hare in Cold Cast Bronze

An enchanting miniature running hare by Butler and Peach made in solid bronze using the lost wax method. Hares are much larger than rabbits and have longer, black-tipped ears and more powerful legs. Consequently they run very fast, up to 35 miles per hour. This bronze figure encapsulates the speed and power of this beautiful British mammal. This small sculpture is 35mm high and is wonderfully true to form.

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 running hare is ideal for those that love British wildlife, especially hares. 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.
