Shipping and Returns Policy
When you’re shopping and comparing bronze statues on the Internet and elsewhere, remember to not only compare size and price, but also quality and origin… Many bronzes listed online are Asian bronzes which cannot be compared to American bronzes for many reasons, including quality and authenticity, e.g.: In the United States we have a minimum standard for bronze of at least 95 percent copper. Most Asian bronze sculptures are usually around 55% copper: You may find cheaper but you won’t find better!
Most in-stock item(s) will be shipped out the same business day if payment is in our PayPal account before noon, EST, or next business day after the payment is cleared unless otherwise specified.
Buyers are responsible for keeping their shipping address current on their PayPal account. We are not responsible for any problem caused by wrong or undeliverable addresses. Buyers pay the extra shipping costs due to wrong or undeliverable addresses including the carrier’s charge for return and our cost to reship the order. All shipments require a signature upon delivery. We cannot ship to APO/FPO addresses or P.O. Boxes.
We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If you find that you need to return an item, please review the complete details of our Return Policy below to determine if any special return conditions apply:

Our digital images are as accurate as possible. However, different monitors & different lighting conditions may cause colors to vary somewhat and marble base colors may differ from photos, either black or green, please contact us if you have a preference. Bronze statues are handcrafted and hand finished. Color can vary and slight imperfections are normal as the hand finishing process adds character and authenticity to those items, no two statues are exactly alike and therefore each is one-of-a-kind. Baby, mini and medium sizes do not have as much detail as the regular and larger sizes, the larger the statue, the more details it has. All dimensions are approximate.
