The Old Spot lost popularity with farmer’s after WW2 as they moved to more intensive farming. However, the gentle nature of the breed and it’s love to forage outside has reversed this trend as we pursue more natural food products. With their distinctive black and white markings and size they are difficult to miss.

This charming Pig is made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The design finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create a deep rich brown patina.  Then bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.

Your bronze is beautifully presented in a printed box containing a signed certificate of authenticity. The bronze is engraved with the sculptor’s signature and limited edition number, matching the certificate enclosed.
