Product Description

A handsome pair of large Staffordshire pottery recumbent lions, in very nice condition.

These appear to be earlier than most examples you see and date from the 1st half of the 19th century. The lions are lying down, with crossed front paws, but with alert faces. They are symmetrical, with a right and left lion. The lions have been painted in a tan colour with glass eyes and snout done in black. The base is a rock pedestal, painted in a majolica effect of different colours.

There are no maker’s marks. Condition is very good however one of the lions has different coloured glass eyes which may be a replacement.
These lions are much scarcer than the dogs.

Size: 34 x 14.5 x 24 cm (13 3/8 x 5 ¾ x 9 ½ inches)
Weight: 6280 g
