This is a fine .925 Sterling Silver reproduction of antique original from a private collection, cast in the U.S. using the lost wax method. Lost wax casting, also called cire-perdue, is an ancient process dating back from the 3rd millennium BC to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome.It has sustained few changes since then, and is still the best method for capturing exquisite detail in metal objects, which could not otherwise be produced given the complexity of their design. This process allows anything modeled in wax to be recreated fully and faithfully into various metals. The lost wax method is still employed today in the areas of sculpture, fine jewelry, restorative work in dentistry and in the industrial setting.It is a demanding and expensive process, but rewards the artisan with an object of great detail and individuality.
