    This 1 1-2" Monet lion brooch has pave rhinestones of topaz, clear and gold, with green eyes on goldtone. Flanked by a 4 1-2"W kingfisher blue glass lion paperweight from the late 1800s by John Derbyshire of London, the recumbent pose modeled after the lion statues in Trafalgar Square. These pressed glass Derbyshire paperweights are mostly chipped due to age, and the design has been widely copied by Fenton, Summit & other other glass companies .

    For Malkey my lion hearted friend and other CW Leo's, hope you enjoy this

      Jenni - wonderful!!! Love the brooch, but really love the blue paperweight. It's majestic! what a lovely tribute to our lion hearted friends :-) I always sound like a dork (wow and wonderful) - I appreciate your descriptions!

      Lol Mary, I always run out of superlatives too.
      Wow Jenni! That is a beautiful blue paperweight, the pose and colour are extraordinary!
      Teamed with your green eyed lordly lion, couldn't be better.

      Love them both, but especially the glass lion.

      I'm a Leo too! These are both lovely creations- the blue is fabulous- he looks so noble like he belongs on the steps of a library or museum or something!
    7. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 10 months ago
      The combination of your Lions stance and his color surely defines.."King of the Jungle".
      Not a big fan of Monet, but you RS encrusted "Leo" is quite the exception!
      Frank, ( my late husband) was a Leo, and with me being Aries, we were "made for each other". BEAUTIFUL TRIBUTE TO LEOS!!

      My Mom & Dad, were both Leo's! Your lions are Magnificent, both of them! :)

      Mary you will never sound dorky to me, as you know me by now you can tell I'm the queen of TMI, some people appreciate it but I just got a snide "thanks for all the info now everyone knows," and how many times I wished we were allowed to delete comments on another's post! I'm always glad to get any and all comments from you, glad you liked the blue lion & his history

      Karen me too, how many ways can you say something is great, I do it too and hope people know I'm sincere. Your compliments are always tops with me especially about glass, very glad you enjoyed both

      Adele I'm really glad you liked the glass lion, I think he's the real deal as I bought him from a reliable antiquer in England, who gave me a good deal because of his chipped base (I don't care the lion part is the real beauty)

      Phil, my lion kings bow down to your great compliment!

      Lentilka, so nice to see you and really glad you enjoyed my lion pair, thanks for the kind words

      Lauren this Leo post is for you too, see we get along so well cause I'm a fire sign Sag, and I hope you had or will have a wonderful BD

      Glad you enjoyed the Monet lion Eileen, I agree not all Monet is top notch, but when I was looking for a lion brooch, this one appealed because it has a regal pose and not the predatory jaws open style that a lot of better designers i.e. Carnegie favored - I love designer pieces but have to like the pose. That is wonderful your hubby was a Leo and you an Aries, perfectly compatible - I'm a Sag and he's Gemini, which is a good match but he's a think first type, and I'm a jump right in type lol

      Ken, how wonderful for you to have Leo parents, do you know I seem to recall reading that Leos make the best parents, they are very loyal and take pride (no pun intended) in their kids, so lucky you! Thanks for the super compliments glad you liked this duo

      Grateful to you all for the kind luv

      Jenni, sorry.......I am one of those "Wow or Wonderful" people too! But I tell you what, I never just say something just to be nice, I always sincerely mean it:-) So before I forget I will say that I really love both of these lions:-) oh, and my husband and I are both Taurus. .......
    13. Newfld Newfld, 10 months ago
      Nothing wrong with saying nice things Judy, I try always to be both honest and appreciative with praise, and usually when you send out love it comes back to you right (karma). You are a really kind and thoughtful person, should have guessed you were a Taurean ruled by Venus, and how great to have the perfect match of a Taurus mate! Found a couple really nice bull brooches I will post soon & hope you'll enjoy. Thank you so much for the sweet words and the love

    14. Newfld Newfld, 10 months ago
      Thank you aura for the kind love & thoughtfulness
    15. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 10 months ago
      Thank you Jenni, sometimes I think I might come across a tad sternly, but I don't mean to! I wish I had your "gift of the gab"which I think is really great:-)
      Oh, and glad you like the profile picture of PeeJay and I, thanks:-)
      Look forward to seeing your bull brooches too!!
    16. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 10 months ago

    17. Newfld Newfld, 10 months ago
      Thank you MrsT for the great compliments, I am really glad you liked both of my lions, always appreciate your kind support & the luv
    18. Newfld Newfld, 10 months ago
      Thanks Judy, just noticed your reply as I don't get email comment notices on my posts anymore, wanted you to know both I and (especially) my husband are in total agreement about my chatty self, sometimes it's too much for him to take on just waking up lol! PeeJay is a real doll & very photogenic
    19. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 10 months ago

      Love both lions, particularly the Derbyshire glass one. I have a blue dog and would love to find more. I will post mine soon. They look lovely placed on a window sill to catch the light.
    26. Newfld Newfld, 6 months ago
      Thank you Marie for the lovely comment, I agree that glass animals look best in the window esp on a sunny day, and really look forward to seeing your blue dog he sounds great

      Many thanks for the love
