Description

Matching pair of antique English Staffordshire lions. These lions probably date to around 1900-1910. They are beautifully detailed down to their handpainted whiskers. There are remnents of original gold accent paint around the bases and in several places on the lions. By the shape of the eyes and the use of the black eyeliner, it does not appear that these lions ever had the button eyes that were used in Staffordshire figures in the 1800s. The glass eyes of that time would have been round and would have fit perfectly in a round space. These wonderful lions do show a very little age crackle to the glaze. They measure approx. 9 3/4" tall, 11" wide, and the base measures approx. 5 1/2" front to back.
