    Spelter is mainly composed of zinc, a silvery white metal. After the object was cast, the surface was either plated with copper, which was then patinated to a dark bronze colour, or simply covered with a coloured wax or lacquer. Spelter was used for statuettes and for decorative elements on clocks, and can be hard to distinguish from bronze at first glance.

    Also, spelter can be come very brittle over time. It can flake, crack, and turn to dust if it was not made properly.

    Garydh, I'm pretty sure yours has gone through some unusual moisture, looks like metal separation in many ways and various places.
