Virtus 1945 is a leading manufacturer of Decoration and Gift Items, produced using the most antique techniques of sand casting. Our main raw material is high quality bronze, which after our casting and hand-assembling, is very well hand-polished and lacquered, obtaining a top-quality piece.
Depending on the “last-touch” of our craftsman, the same piece can be completely different: Natural Bronze Colour (Our bronze hand polished in Golden colour), Hand Painted (Green/Blue mixed with natural colour), Antique (Special Oxidation in Dark Brown), Green (Special Oxidation in Green mixed with natural colour), Combined (of Natural Bronze and Antique giving an unique looking to the piece); and also the possibility of Plating the same item with: Gold (24k), Silver (999/000) or Nickel.
Exclusive classic and modern designs are produced in our factory for our customers, following the antique techniques, but using the most modern quality control methods for our International Markets.
The Company was created by Mrs. Blanca Villuendas Virtus in 1945, when she had the clear-mind of the development of the Bronze in Spain. starting by buying some pieces to small workshops, she had the vision to make the bronze products more commercial and reach all the possible fields of the market. At this stage, she decided to start her own production with more artisans, and enlarge the manufacturing of Bronze.
In the beginning she developed the domestic market in Spain, and later helped by her young children who were well prepared in studies and languages, she started developing the international markets.
Now the Bronze of VIRTUS is sold in more that 50 countries, and appreciated by many different customers worldwide, valuating our pieces as a delicate creation to complete their homes.
