Ferocious Roaring Lion Bronze Inkwell

Don't be put off by those bared teeth. This vintage bronze lion is just protecting his little well of ink.

This impressive detailed inkwell is solid bronze. There are no markings that we see so it's hard to date this but a bit of verdigris indicates this has some age. We also couldn't find another like it, indicating it's not one that was produced in any number.

The lion measures 6 inches across the front by 5 1/2 inches deep. It's 4 3/8 inches high.

The head lifts up to expose the little bronze inkwell which measures 1 1/2 inches across the top by 1 inch high.

The bronze shows some age-related patina. Overall, this wild cat inkwell makes an excellent decorative pet.
