    pair 1930s tennis player bronze sculpture male & female

    A pair of beautiful bronzes depicting 1930s male and female tennis players with racquet in hand. They represent a bygone era when ladies played the game in long, flowing, modest dresses, and gentlemen in long pants and collared dress shirts. These high quality bronzes are made from the lost wax process (cire perdue). The attention to detail is fantastic and the sculptures, set on an attractive marble base, are extremely lifelike.

 each 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.
