That’s interesting, I hadn’t noticed the different base on the flint one. I have come across quite a few of these little beasts, but never seen one with that base before. Do you know how many different colours/variations there are, mine is blue rather than turquoise so that's another colour I'll be on the look out for.

I take it that you have a winged sphinx...yet to find one of those...at the right price that is!

Not got a winged sphinx yet. There are some small blue lions on etsy at the moment, which have different base patterns.

Going back to the original thread, the information that Anne tique provided show my lioness was part of a series. The Monkey of that series can be found on the Pressed glass pavilion website and is stamped Baccarat. So dad is happy with that but now wants a matching male Lion Doh!

And at the end of the story she found her mate.

Hi Mike

The monkey one on Pamela website was found by myself at Sandown Park. As far as I can remember it was bought by the Baccarat Museum.

Hi Roy,
That’s funny, as my mum and dad used to go to the Sandown Antique shows 15-20 years ago. We weren’t expecting to find the male lion so quick after the lioness. I must say Anne tiques thread and Pamela’s website have been really useful. The Baccarat figures are really great quality. On eBay at the
Moment “smash n grab” has a a Baccarat dog and cat for sale. We have a green dog extremely similar to the Baccarat one but is supposedly attributed to Greener, do you know if there is a Greener and Baccarat connection?
The middle one in this picture below. Thanks

Nice find, amazing that you came across one so quickly.

Back to the small John Derbyshire style lions (sorry!) I went through my archive and came across one with the unusual style base. It seems to be slightly better quality than the usual ones, so like you say probably Derbyshire or Davidson.

Hi Penelope,
Yes that's what I think, your top one gas a crimped pattern around the base like the Derbyshire Davidson ones and the bottom photo I think is a Greener/ Jobling reproduction, mind you I could be wrong.
Here are some of my fathers Derbyshire Crossed paw lions and Henry Greeners large Lion on shield.

Hi Roy, I have placed an answer on your original post for your your Greener lion with a lump on his head.
