Object Description

The well carved pair of mid-nineteenth century opposing stone gate pier carvings, each modelled as the head of a lion with full manes, presented in fragmentary condition, the wholes with an appealing weathered and decorative look, surviving from a Scottish estate.

Object History

Unknown.

Object Literature

This pair would have more than likely been sat upon a pier gate, either side of an entrance. They were sourced in Scotland and we believe they came from an estate near Fife.

A good early pair of stone carvings that could be positioned in or out as great decorative features.

Object Condition

In fragmentary condition, the carvings (limestone?) show commensurate weathering with age through direct exposure of the elements, with one head in two pieces and the other in three pieces.
