Description

Interesting pair of early C19th patinated cast lead lions mounted on rouge griotte marble plinth bases.
Cast lead lions or lionesses modelled in a lying, resting pose with crossed front paws and their tails wrapped across their rear flanks . Patinated to resemble bronze mounted upon well-figured rouge griotte marble rectangular bases. Resembling the model of lion depicted in the ancient Eyptian Pharaonic period with serene and stately pose.
Some wear to the faces probably from cleaning and rubbing commensurate with age. The bodies with historic marks and minor dents and dings , having been caused by the nature of the soft lead medium , but no breaks or losses. Good consistent patination.
