MAKING THE REGAL LION
The standard that we have set for the Regal Lion is uncompromising, pushing the limits of what can be achieved by the human hand. The finished sculpture will be as close to perfection as is physically possible in the hands of a master. Every edge must be absolutely smooth and every surface ‘true’ flat. Achieving this is so demanding of skill and time that we anticipate making no more than about 30 pieces a year.
Each sculpture begins with six carved waxes. The waxes are cast (in either Elite Silver, Gold or Platinum), and the four pieces comprising the lower section of the Lion Sculpture are meticulously worked until any detectable flaws have been eliminated. These pieces are then joined, and each surface polished to a mirror finish.
The Lion’s head, with all of its angles and curves, goes through a similarly painstaking process. When ready for final polishing, the sapphires or diamonds are cut and set in the eyes and ears. The head is then finish polished and assembled to the lower section. The last step is the attachment of the Lion to the black 304 stainless steel stopper itself. The making of the Regal Lion takes days of the master’s hand.
