Bronze & Ormolu - Objects d'Art

Several of the items in this category, such as busts & classical figures were acquired on the Grand Tour. This was fashionable throughout the 18th Century & into the early 19th, whereby upper-class young gentlemen completed their education by visiting cultural sites connected with classical antiquity & the Renaissance, travelling through France, Italy & Greece. The purchase of souvenirs, often made of bronze, from these sites became popular, & we stock various examples. However we also offer commemorative historical figures, animals & interesting objects from elsewhere.
