A very substantial plaster cast of Bouré’s classic bronze lion.
This beautiful plaster piece is wonderfully modelled: an imposing piece for any setting.
It has good age and is likely 19th century.
Bronzed paint effect to reflect the original. Stamped '325' to the rear of the base.
This impressively-scaled and arresting bronze-patinated plaster sculpture study of a crouching and snarling lion, cast after the bronze original.
Bouré was a Belgian sculptor (1831-1883) best known for his monumental lions , his sculptures were considered remarkable for their combination of grace and power. His reputation rests largely on his large sculptural lions, characterised by their athletic musculature and majestic air.
A highly decorative and powerful image of good scale.
Condition: Where there are specific points to note we will detail these as far as possible but please be aware that all our items have wear commensurate with age and are as seen in the photographs. If you require any specific information please do not hesitate to get in contact. Please note: this piece has wear as expected with plaster but no breaks. There are several small losses to the surface as seen and common with plaster pieces. The overall look is still very striking, as you can see, but it does have minor defects.
