Triple Dragonfly Copper Garden Sculpture
The Triple Dragonfly Copper Garden Sculpture is painstakingly hand-made by metallurgists in Surrey, UK. Don't allow our images to deceive you, because each Dragonfly is approximately 18cm in length, so it is a garden feature that intends to be noticed. The Triple Dragonfly is designed for ponds and flowerbeds, and will add a touch of refinement to any outdoor setting
DIMENSIONS length of each dragonfly = 18cm; wingspan of each dragonfly = 19cm; length of springwires = 85cm
MADE FROM SOLID COPPER AND BRASS the body of each dragonfly is cast in brass, with the wings being cut and torch-finished in solid copper. These un reactive metals don't simply give the sculpture its refinement, but levels of durability that mean this work of art will feature in your garden from one generation to the next
LIMITED EDITION HAND-MADE IN SURREY this design is painstakingly hand-made by metallurgists in Surrey. The body of each Dragonfly is cast by hand in molten brass, the wings cut and finished in solid sheet copper
INSTALLATION PRINCIPLE AND EFFECT the triple Dragonfly simply needs to be taken out of the box and placed in the location of choice. Whether you situate it in your pond, or amongst foliage in a flowerbed, the Dragonflies will respond to changes in wind and light to add a dynamic and colourful aspect to the area
NATURAL AGEING made from solid polished copper and brass, these un reactive metals do not rust and will endure for years to come. They do, however, age gracefully and in time the Dragonflies will acquire a mature looking patina
OTHER NOTES/SPECIFICATIONS base stand constitution = high density lead; notes on fixing the feature = the feature comes ready to free-stand, but the base can be drilled for bolting to hard surfaces for extra security. If installing in a particularly boggy pond, you may need to build a plinth to provide a firm footing for the sculpture; discontinuation date = unannounced
DELIVERY NOTICE please bear in mind that your Triple Dragonfly will be made-to-order, so we ask for a lead time of 28 days before delivery. Although it rarely happens, we do ask you to be empathetic if there are any delays with your order (hand-made production is less predictable than factory production). Naturally we will do our best to inform you if delays are foreseen, but we must stress that this is not a product for you if you are on a tight time schedule - this could lead to frustration and inconvenience

Bought this for my wife for Christmas and she loves it. The wind makes them dance and glimmer in the sunlight and the feature is actually bigger and more impressive than expected.

Okay, first the negative feedback - this took too long to get to me. 40 days in total when is states 28 days. If it takes 40 days, it should say 40 days, so that's one point lost.
Now the positive feedback - the sculpture is very nice. I like the way the light reflects off it, and it looks impressive on a cold bright morning amongst the bulrushes at the edge of my pond.
