You are viewing a fantastic pair of bronze art deco style greyhounds sitting on a bronze base. The quality to the pair is amazing as I hope the photos adequately convey. Of course being bronze they can live outside with no fear of rusting, would make a great pair either side of a door or entry as gatekeepers.
It’s a real unusual piece full of character and would look outstanding in the hallway as part of an ecelectic and open minded interiors scheme. The bronze has a lovely dark brown nutty patina to it and we were very excited coming across this at the Newark Antique fair.
The stance of the dog really attracted us too with his cocked ears and attentive pose. You can see from the side pictures too the minimal style in which the artist has captured the angularity of the dog in an almost art deco style.
Being bronze this will last forever without rusting and hence is a great investment as it will always appreciate in value. Aside from being aesthetically pleasing and nice to look at they can also become heirlooms.
Bronze is any of several alloys consisting mainly of copper and tin. Neither ancient nor modern bronzes consist only of these two metals. Zinc, lead, and silver were added to bronze alloys by Greek and Roman founders for use in tools, weapons, coins, and objects of art. Zinc, lead, and other metals are occasionally present in modern bronze.
