Terra-cotta Lions

Item #05176

A pair of 17th-century style terra-cotta lions seated on their haunches, with animated expressions, their fully-maned heads turned in opposing directions, English, ca. 1890.  32.75 ins. high, 13.5 ins. wide, 23.75 ins. overall length.

Barbara says, "These are direct copies of 17th-century French lions and show the distinctive craggy face.  American lions tend to be friendly and gentle looking while their European counterparts are often engaged in or ready for battle".
