About the Item

An incredibly rare pair of lifesize bronze Lions. English, circa 1860. These lions were recently obtained from an English Country Estate where they had resided exposed to the elements for decades. These grand tour bronzes have a high copper content as evidenced by the blue green oxidisation which have occurred due to decades of precipitation. They stand 43" and measure 67" nose to tail.
