This old lion has been around for a while, with the battle scars to prove it. Craggy in the most adorable way, his chipped nose adds even more character to his wonderful sourpuss expression. We love this guy, or any of our other fabulous wildlife figures, as part of a vibrant Dutch Masters style tablescape as seen on BUST.com. Create a dreamy night garden vibe for a special event…or your fabulous every day décor!
Vintage majolica (glazed fired earthenware similar to French/German faience). Made in Italy. Measures approximately 6” tall by 3” wide. Scars at nose, back of mane and base.
A male African Lion, Panthera leo, lives about 12 years in the wild. In captivity they live up to 20 but with significantly fewer distinguishing scars. Lions did once roam ancient Italy, but were hunted out.
