I had seen this piece just once or twice online and then finally decided that I had to have him at a reasonable price from an ebay seller.
This is a heavy piece weighing in at 3 pounds.
I just love the pose – so relaxed!
I couldn’t resist it when I saw it at the right price. I got an ID from an Etsy vendor who was selling the exact piece and advertising it as Viking made. When questioned she said that she was the original owner and that it still had the original label on it.
I’ve seen it names online as ‘Sleeping Lion’ but I don’t know if this is a Viking name.
A great addition to my collection.
