Extremely rare late 17th / early 18th century polychromed lion box. The box has been carved out of a solid piece of limestone and the head of the lion is crowned with a rose and is surrounded by leaves and berries which give it real depth and a realistic feel. The metal lid is probably a later addition. A charming and unusual piece.
Dimensions: W 23 cm x H 19 cm x D 13 cm
Condition: Excellent antique condition. Some small chips to the stone and paint missing in places.
