Landseer Lion on Felted Alabaster Base Patinated Spelter Antique circa 1880

A black patinated spelter figure of a Landseer lion mounted on an alabaster (marble look) plinth or base. This beautifully modelled majestic recumbent (couchant) lion figure is based on those installed by Sir Edwin Landseer on the plinths around Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square, London, England in 1867. This model may have been made as a commemorative piece or souvenir.

It was made in England in the mid to late 19th century during the reign of Queen Victoria circa 1880.

The figure is in good antique condition, it has some minor knocks and marks and wear to the black finish. The base too has some very minor marks and chips. It has a red felt base to prevent damage to delicate surfaces, the felt may possibly be a 20th century replacement. There is a loose item inside the figure, it rattles when lifted although the model is firmly attached to the base.

This is a great item for display and is very decorative, attractive and is a reasonably unusual example of antique decorative metal-ware or Victorian souvenir ware.
