Klappentext

Excerpt from Greek Moulds

The present volume contains a catalogue of plaster and clay moulds intended for the fabrication of bronzes and terracottas l. Stamps and stone moulds have not been included. A large part of the material has been exhibited in the Museum for many years, though it has attracted little attention hitherto. The only mention of it, so far as I am aware, occurs in the Notice of 1 895-7 where it is described as 11 moules pour fabriquer des tétes de Bes etc. A (p. 1 o 1 Salle [13 Armoire C) The moulds for bronzes form far the larger and more interesting part of the collection. They not only comprise some charming fragments of later Greek art, but they are also important for their hearing on the question of ancient bronze casting. This portion ofthe material being probably unique I have descrlbed it at some length in the following introduction, which I hope will be found useful even though the explanations offered be not always correct for it is a somewhat peri lous subject to handle without a practical knowledge of modern technique.
