One of the best parts of consigning high quality antiques and collectibles is meeting new clients and hearing the stories behind their items. Stories that enhance the pair of vintage bronze lion garden statues that we have on consignment.
As our consignment client was approaching retirement, he was on a business trip in California. One evening he decided to go out for a stroll to break up the monotony and seclusion of the hotel stay. Along the way he came across a local antique shop. Not shopping for anything in particular, he found something he had always wanted, a pair of bronze lion statues. Surprisingly, they were exactly what he had been envisioning all this time. They were purchased immediately as an early retirement gift to himself.
Once they arrived, they immediately removed them from the wooden crates that were delivered to his home in Pennsylvania. He and his wife enjoyed them immensely over the years and though they were not antique, they certainly enjoy the work of the artist Erik Kramer. Particularly, the fierce expressions and flowing detailed mane that resulted from the casting. They hesitate to have them go but now is the time for them to downsize and move to the next chapter of their life.
Spring is upon us and it’s a great time to plan your landscaping and yard decorations for the year.
Consider adding garden ornaments and sculptures that will enhance all the plants and flowers in your gardens and flower beds.
This pair of bronze lion statues will make a monumental statement as your visitors pass through your entryway or stroll through your garden.
