    The Neoclassical French  Shell is one of our best reproductions.  We reproduced this pattern from an 1890 original set.  The lost wax technique gives an exact reproduction.  The finest details are captured.


    An impression is made of the original using the same process and materials that a dentist uses.  Wax is poured into this impression to make a wax reproduction.  The wax is put into a flask and surrounded by investment, a very fie powder like sand.  The flask is put in an oven and the wax melts away leaving a perfect copy of the original.  Bronze is then poured into the space where the wax melted.


    We cast in bronze, the same content as the originals.  It is unlacquered and will acquire a statuary patina with time.  We also offer a hand antiqued finish that gives a darker finish.
