Canova china lion
Large heavy clay lion after the lion created by Antonio Canova (1757 - 1822). This one was created we believe in the 19th century.
There is some crazing to the glaze to the lion resting on its plinth of underglaze colour wash (perhaps emulating marble).
There is a restored chip to one corner (in image).
Size 55cm long 31cm height 19cm width.
