Purchasing Tips for Marble Statues

Below are some things to consider when buying a bronze statue or a marble statue. We will add to this list on occasion. Please send us any suggestions for items to include.
Statues under 24 inches tall are sent via United Parcel Service to your home or business address. Statues over 24 inches will likely require special freight delivery. Bronze statues are very heavy and can, therefore, be shipped only to businesses or cemeteries. Delivery time for marble statues is 5-10 working days, depending on your location. For bronze deliveries, the delivery time can be up to six weeks. Statues are manufactured in Europe and arrive in the U.S. by ship at Houston, Texas. When they reach the Houston harbor, they are inspected by customs and released to our shipping facilitator who sends it on its way to your address. Before we deliver a statue to a cemetery, we check with the office to authorize delivery.
If you are planning to install a statue in a cemetery, please check before ordering to make sure your statue will follow the cemetery's rules. Cemeteries will often install the statue for you or can recommend a professional installer. We do not sell bases for our statues, so, if you need a base, you should check with a local marble or granite dealer. To ease installation, we can have marble statues pre-drilled for a pin in the bottom. There is an additional charge of $19.95 for this. This option is offered to you directly when you place your order.
Bonded Marble Information:
All of our marble statues are made of a substance known as bonded marble, which is a mixture of marble powder and a resin solution. Bonded marble, once dry, is much stronger than natural marble alone. We do not sell natural marble statues as they are much more expensive and more fragile than bonded marble.
Our marble statues are made in legendary Carrara, Italy by one of the finest manufacturers in that country. Our bronze statues are made in Spain by one of the leading manufacturers of bronze art.
