Object Description

A pair of antique Scottish terracotta parodic shield-bearing lion finials dating to circa 1880. Seated on shaped bases with shields and expressive faces, this eye-catching pair are full of character, incorporating Victorian and medieval styles.

Sourced from a Scottish estate and made from very durable fire clay terracotta. This pair would look impressive acting as driveway finials or at the entrance of a home. Perhaps they could even be a stunning new element for the garden of a country home.
