Chinese Bronze

Bronze has always been regarded as one of the first alloy metals to be utilised in many cultures for equipment vital to everyday life, such as ploughshares, yokes and axles.

As early as the 17th century BC, the Chinese were using Bronze, an alloy of copper with a small mixture of tin and lead, which added strength and durability, ensuring many of the pieces are still around today, to create artifacts of beauty and symbolism throughout their culture.
