One of the reasons you are likely to visit an antique shop is to buy art deco bronzes. For the uninitiated, the art Deco era lasted through the 1920s. It featured a rare aesthetic fizz and youthful exuberance. It is because of their stylish nature that these sculptures are well sought after all over the world. For that reason, you may want to join the bandwagon. But just how do you ensure you buy the right art deco bronze? Here are a few suggestions.
1. Proportionality of the Bronze

If you are not careful, you may end up overlooking the proportionality of a bronze. Yet, that is the most important aspect when it comes to real-life representation of the piece of art. For example, you may want to ensure that the legs aren’t too short and the neck too long. The trick is to ensure the sculpture looks as life-life as possible. That’s the best way to be sure you are buying something designed and created by a masterful artist.
2. The Design

When it comes to the visual appeal of a bronze sculpture, the design is the most important factor. Make sure the sculpture you buy is lifelike, visually interesting, stimulating, and kinetic. So, don’t be in a rush to buy sculpture. By ensuring the sculpture has the right elements, you will pick a piece of art that interests you and your visitors in equal measure. If anything, the design also plays an important role in determining the resale value of the sculpture.
3. Accurate Facial Expressions

It is important to note that art deco bronzes featured much more than people. In fact, some of them were sculptures of animals. Regardless of whether it represents a person or an animal, the sculpture must represent the right pose and facial expression. Take a sculpture representing a runner. Its face should be that of a person involved in a race. If it doesn’t depict someone exerting energy, then it is not good enough. In the same breath, an archer’s sculpture should show the face of someone aiming at a target.
4. Line of Sight

Once you have bought a bronze sculpture, you will need to place it somewhere within your home. The major consideration to make is the line of sight in which it stands. As such, the position of the sculpture should be as proportional as possible. If you intend to put it on a table, make sure it is neither too big nor too small. So, pay attention to how the sculpture will look for you and your visitors once you display it.
