In excellent condition, perfectly intact - item of excellent workmanship - original

A fine pair of Carrara Calacatta marble Lions of Saint Mark, entirely hand carved, coming from the city centre of Venice and dating back to the early 20th century. In Venice, it was customary to put a pair of Lions on top of a cabinet or a writing desk; this pair comes from a private residence that bordered the Grand Canal of Venice. They were never treated or restored in any way, and they still show their original patina.
Entirely hand carved
Rare items: as being very small were often lost.
Note the high quality of the marble, and the care and precision used to carve the Lions, whose details are still well defined.
Suitable as decorative elements, paperweights or interior design items; thanks to their limited size, they can be placed almost everywhere.
A unique lot! A charming and elegant pair of excellent artistic and historical value.
In perfect condition and intact.
In case of shipping, they will be sent after a proper professional packaging.

Dimensions (each):
- width 6 cm
- length 11.5 cm
- height 9 cm
Weight: 0.6 kg.
