This lion is from a series of small crystal animals known as hand coolers. During the Victorian era, so the story goes, woman would hold similar crystal or porcelain object to keep their hands from perspiring. This is a rather fierce looking lion that is only 2 3/ 4" tall. It is signed Steuben on the bottom as shown. The lion hand cooler is in excellent condition with no cracks, chips, or scratches. It has a wonderful glow typical of fine Steuben crystal. We do not have the original box. We have other pieces of Steuben in our shop including fine Carder era green stemware. We have been in business for 30 years. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
