|Offered here is a very handsome bronze sculpture of a Serengeti lion dating to around the turn of the century. It has a lovely warm patina, with a bit of a sheen on the high spots where hands have been. I believe it was probably attached to a base of some type because there is a hole on the underside where a screw might have been. This lion has substantial heft. I don't have a way of weighing it here at the shop, but I will guess maybe 8 pounds. The lion is 8" across and 4" high. He would look wonderful atop a stack of old books.|
