Pheasants 1940's Antique Spelter Cast Metal Pheasant unique miniatures Wild Game Birds, collectible retro 40's Art S92a
Pair of Pheasants with the original paint intact.
Resting on wooden base
This detailed pair of miniature statues are very naturalistic.
The birds are made of some type of metal ...they were tagged as Spelter
Spelter is a softer metal than bronze
Note: I cannot find a hallmark on this piece. When purchased it had a price tag that said Spelter on it.
He comes with some starches on his back. He is still quite stunning.... Determined.
Measures - 7 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Remember this of metal sculptures large or small
A lot of people think they have bronzes ...but in fact they have Spelter
To distinguish between the two, Eric suggests a simple test you can do at home.
On the underside of the sculpture's base, scratch the piece's patina with another piece of metal.
If the scratch is a copper color, it's bronze
If it's silvery gray, it's spelter.
