Description
Dentzel Lion, circa 1910. Unlike earlier Dentzel lions with their muscular, upright, roaring pose that sometimes frightened children, this later version has a gentler face and less threatening stance while keeping its majestic presence. The use of undercut carving and the beautifully detailed mane and fur show the influence of master carver Salvatore Cernigliaro. Exquisite example in superb condition, cleaned down to the original paint layer, 81L x 52H.
