Pair of French Terracotta Lions, 19th Century Stamped
Spectacular opposing pair of late 19th-early 20th century French terracotta sculptures of life-size lions. Signed Mandeville: Bernier.

The striking naturalism of the faces, manes and muscular haunches is only enhanced by the warm ochre glaze covering the pieces. Can be purposed both as an interior decorative sculpture or as outdoor garden statuary. These lions will elegantly guard your home and accent any room with a classical touch. Stamped: "Mandeville : Bernier Fab ue Produits Ceramiques Castelnaudary (aude)" Mandeville : Bernier was founded in 1881 and manufactured detailed and exquisite ceramics til the 1940s.
