Description

Many years ago the Conker was used as a food for horses and cattle. The hard nut had to be softened by either soaking in lime-water or boiling overnight. There was also an “old wives tale” that if you carried one in your pocket it relieved rheumatism. Today, as we all know, youngsters will gather them up, string them and use in conker fights. This particular bronze has the advantage of a removeable conker.

The conker 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 deep rich brown and green patinas.  Then bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
