A very nice decorative and well made piece, the Lion hairy paw hark back to the early 17. Century designs, the are superbly carved and look amazing from every angle. The timber is all original and has the correct patina for the age, its hand sawn and has the wonderful cut marks all over. The paint finish is period ebonising and worn and aged as you would expect. This piece has been designed as either a planter or wine cooler, I think most likely as a planter or for some kind of storage as it has the wooden base where as a cooler would be all metal.
We have cleaned waxed and polished it from top to bottom, absolutely soaked it in three coats of Cuprinol worm treatment, it is in ready to go condition throughout. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
