Pair of Victorian Staffordshire Lions
converted to table lamps
working and PAT tested
Fantastic pair of Recumbent Lions dating from the Victorian period. The lions are a nice large example of good quality with glass eyes. They have been mounted on a black base and very tastefully converted to electric table lamps with brass fittings. They are in fully working order and have been PAT tested for electrical safety. They come with matching black shades with gold edging - the shades will likely need to be replaced as when the lights are on they are a little patchy. I haven't replaced them so they can be matched to your room / taste.
Approximate Measurements :
Length of lions : 11"
Height of lions : 10"
Total Height with shade : 22"
The lions themselves are in very good condition. They have not been drilled or damaged in any way during the conversion. There are some light patches of glaze crazing here and there and a small knock on the side of one lion on its tail (see photo) but other than this there are no other damages and it doesn't detract from its overall appeal. They display beautifully.
The best description I can give comes from the photos so please have a good look and if you have any questions at all please ask.
