Pair of English Reclining Stone Lions on Bases from the Early 20th Century

About

A pair of English reclining stone lions circa 1920 resting on elongated bases. This pair of reclining male lions, with their substantial manes, are relaxed but alert, with one front paw laying flat while the other seems poised to move if necessary. In the 1920s, alongside the success of the Art Nouveau style, other styles developed and thrived as well, influenced by the works of previous centuries. Representation of animals in the field of sculpture was one such movement, building on the foundations of animaliers such as François Pompon. These lions are a perfect example of such a style, which contrasted greatly with the flowers and female figures so common in Art Nouveau. Set on either side of a chimney or an entrance door, these reclining stone lions convey both style and stature to the visitors to any home.
