Lovely sculpture of a girl dancing with a ribbon made in lead. Girl with Ribbon statue has become a garden classic - the design is thought to have originated at the lead ornament foundry of The Bromsgrove Guild. The English lead figure's profile and movement makes it perfect for almost any garden.
As Gertrude Jekyll the famous English garden designer pronounced firmly "There can scarcely be a doubt that the happiest material for our garden sculpture and ornament is lead. Lead has been used to decorate and shape English gardens for centuries. It's a wonderful and durable material that is naturally resistant to any type of corrosion and cracking as well as impervious to harsh winters, sea-salt air, and inclement environments. When left exposed to wind, weather, and time, it will develop a beautiful grey patina that will last generations.
