Rare Pair of French Terracotta Armorial Griffins, Signed "Merareau"
Superlative in all respects, this proper opposing pair of French hand-modeled terracotta armorial griffins has traces of blue paint and is signed "Merareau '94" on both statues. With incredible detail, these figures are rare, rare, rare and feature a lovely, age- appropriate surface. There are losses and a old repair to the front and back edges of bases and one wing, along with minor restoration to the beak of one. These griffins would be sensational perched on your entrance gate piers or atop a stone wall flanking the entrance to your garden.
H: 24 in (60.96 cm) D: 13 in (33.02 cm) W: 32 in (81.28 cm)
