The gilt bronze work is exceptionally good with finely chased details to the arms, drip pans and nozzles, the surface with burnished gilt work contrasted with matt edges to give contrast to the opulent gold plated surface. Cast with the lost wax process, the backs retain some of the sand from the original casting.
