Item Description

An English hand carved limestone lion statue possibly dating from as early as the 16th century. Made at the hand of a talented artisan, the limestone is detailed with tooling and chisel marks made by the maker throughout, depicting a small lion in a sejant seated position. Though weathered throughout the ages, this 400-500 year old carving has stood the test of time, with details of the lion’s mane, paws and face recognisable to this very day. An antique artefact offering a glimpse into historic England!
