Butler and Peach - Miniature Swimming Otter in Cold Cast Bronze

A delightful miniature otter by Butler and Peach made in solid bronze using the lost wax method. This bronze otter is swimming amongst the lily pads as it does in its natural habitat. This small sculpture is 60mm 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 swimming otter is ideal for those that love British wildlife, particularly otters. 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.
