Exquisite Museum-Quality Handmade Heraldic Lion


Possibly one of my favorite antique appliques of all time!  This amazingly beautiful 3-dimensional needlework made by hand in the mid-1800’s was purchased in England.   The lion has been used for centuries on European emblems and heraldic flags to signify bravery, nobility, royalty, strength, stateliness, and valour.  I’ve repaired and restored him down to his toenails and mounted him on silk velvet – a historic piece of art guaranteed to make you smile. Down and feather fill.  18″ X 18″
