Pair of 19th Century English Cast Iron Sitting Lion Statues

About

A pair of English sitting lions of cast-iron from the 19th century on stands. This antique pair of cast-iron lions from England are each one half of a pair, with front position being shown at side to create a perfectly seated pair, which have then been raised upon custom iron stands with round-shaped bases. This large pair of lions have gorgeous, full manes of hair, and one half of the pair an alert, upturned tail. They have a wonderful rusty and chippy paint patina, with much of their original coloring still in tact. Please note due to the nature of the cast-iron and iron bases, that these pieces are quite heavy. This fabulous pair of English 19th century lions are ready to take their admirable positions standing guard at your home, perhaps flanking an entry, indoors or out.
