Pair of Mid-20th Century British Colonial Shielded Terracotta Lions

About

A pair of British Colonial painted terracotta lions from the mid-20th century. This vintage pair of lions from Kerala, India have each been created in a seated position with a single front leg or paw raised atop a shield, which is decorated with a single conch shell at center. This pair of lions have textured manes, and alert facial expression with gaping mouths. These pieces have a wash of grey coloring throughout, still allowing some areas of the natural terracotta to be visible from beneath. This pair of mid-century British Colonial lions stand just shy of 2 feet in height.
