Condition These lovely bronze vases are in excellent condition and have been well cared for. Please see photographs to confirm condition. They were made by the classical lost wax or cire perdue method. Cire Perdue Sometimes called by the French name of 'cire perdue' or the Latin, 'cera perduta' is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artist's sculpture. In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
