Pair of 19th Century Staffordshire Lion Figurines for your consideration. Each lion figure measures approx. 10 inches tall, 11 inches long and 5 3/8 inches deep. Recumbent lions on plinth; reddish-brown and cream color with gold gilt highlights. Original amber glass eyes. Embossed cross mark and handwritten gilt, “X” mark on base of one of the lions. Very good antique condition. Shows wear commensurate with age and use. Crazing throughout; including a few minor hairlines down the backs on each. Shallow chip to base of one lion. Not noticeable except under close examination or if the lion is turned upside down. See photos. Displays handsomely! Would look great on any fireplace mantle or library bookshelf!
