This came from the estate of Ian Arundel, who owned the Old Curiosity Shop in Santa Monica in the 1950's. Figural animals are rare, and this is an unusual lion, made during the days of the battles in the Colosseum. It came in an old wood box which has protected it.
The lion measures about 1 1/2" high, 3" wide and 1 1/2 deep. Wood box 1 3/4" high, 4 1/2" wide and 2 3/8 deep. This is an ancient dug item.
The box it came in, looks Japanese in origin. This weighs including box about 3.4 oz before packing.
