 An Imposing Pair Of Chalkware Lions


A pair of chalkware lions in a reclining pose. Probably American made, circa the last quarter of the 19th century. In good condition and original paint, with one small area of inpaint on the top of one head - see "detail" picture below. Overall length is 11 1/2" and height is 10 ". They are hollow with the bottom closed as shown in attached pictures. A strong addition to a folk art or primitive collection.
