Color of the Season

Posted by Kathleen Shure on

For a limited time, we are offering a unique patina on three items!

Our Verdigris Patina is inspired by the green color that bronze, brass, and copper acquire after exposure to air over time. It gives our sculpture reproductions a weathered but rich look, and it complements both ornamental and figurative pieces.

One of the pieces you can purchase is the Leaf Mask #24. Attributed to Michelangelo, this “Green Man” looks wonderful in our Verdigris Patina. It would be a great piece to hang amongst other artifacts and oddities.

 A decorative piece we are offering in this patina is perfect for the holiday dinner table. Our Candlestick #22 is a great conversation piece as guests can admire the intricate details such as sculpted garlands, cherubs, and floral ornamentation. From now until December 6, we are selling them for $80 each (reg. $120) in any patina! Use Code CANDLE80 at checkout!

We also wanted to highlight the human form with this unique patina, and have included our bust of Niccolo da Uzzano #179. This expressive face from the larger bust that’s found at the Bargello Museum in Florence is thought to be the first portrait since Classical antiquity that was made as an independent artwork. It is a perfect statement piece for modern classical or Italian-inspired decor.

The last day to order the Leaf Mask #24, the Candlestick #22 and Niccolo da Uzzano #179 in the Verdigris Patina is December 6

December 6 is also the last day to order items in time for holiday gifts! Once we receive your order, we hand cast your piece, finish it, and pack it up for shipment. So get your order in soon!

  • Love this finish! Really beautiful. Could you do verdigris on any pieces in the collection, or just these three? (And would Dec. 6 be the deadline for any verdigris orders?). Am green with anticipation.
