    About this item

    A stylish and unusual Victorian hand sculpted pressed leather figure of a lioness dating from the latter 19th century. The figure is beautifully made and portrays a prowling lioness her head held to one side. The figure is well sculpted and made in brown leather with well-defined features and characteristics in good proportion. The head and facial features are well detailed with inset glass eyes with defined muscle and rib features to the body. The lioness has a long tail and the figure is not marked.

    Provenance: acquired in the British Art Market.

    In good condition with a few normal age drying cracks to the leather surface however these do not detract.
