I bought this a couple months ago and like it more and more. it's very worn - most of the glaze has worn off it, but this is a hard stoneware or terracotta lion. i think it's deco in style, but not positive. could be art nouveau or arts and crafts as well. i have no idea where it's from.

    never thought of it as deco -- just the english garden lion or keeper of the enty way -- very pretty

    i have quite a few antique lions - cast stone, pottery, cement, etc... and each one has a very unique style to him. this one definitely feels 'deco' to me. maybe nouveau, but mostly deco.
