A simply superb old fairground carousel galloper in the form of a gentle lion. He’s so nicely modelled, in full run with the friendliest face!
We think this would make a superb decorative piece, or be a great shop/pub/bar/restaurant prop, and wherever you put it, it will be the star attraction.
The lion could easily be mounted on a stand as he has the bracket underneath to take a pole. He stands well as it is - though one foot is slightly raised, he is steady.
Please note that is an original, old salvaged fibreglass piece.
Max height 66cm
Seat/saddle height 37cm
Width at footrest (widest point) 47cm
Lion width c.30cm
