A fine pair of gilded bronze lions from the 17th century. The surface on the lions has been re-gilded over the original yellow gold, matt, parcel gilt. Each figure has a stylised look with oversized paws and a coiffured mane. The faces are of particular character. The lions would have probably been used as a support, possibly off a lectern, and are likely of German origin.
