nice piece Roy  -  must follow you next time at Ardingly ;)      You may well be correct re the possibility of yours being a base for something like a comport.   

thought I'd remembered seeing pressed lions in the V. & A. recently - so checked again last week, but couldn't see any, although I suppose they might have them in store.

I knew something was nagging about the name Simba and these lions  -  and I've just realized ;D ;D

Apologies to Barbara that we've gone off course rather. :)

Thanks Paul

I can remember seeing a blue Derbyshire lion in the V&A but that was at least 5 years or more ago

Hi, just restarting this one with a lion I picked up today. He is 16cm h and 17.5 w approx and the diameter of the 'fixing' on the head is 3cm. It has four lugs where something definitely sat on top of it. Has anyone come across the 'missing' item yet ? This one has a crack running up through it but it can't be felt on the surface??
Pete. :-)
