Step back in time with this magnificent set of three brass lion head footrail supports, hailing from the late 19th to early 20th century. These opulent fixtures exemplify the luxurious interior design trends of the Gilded Age, where every detail in a home or public space was a statement of elegance and refinement.


Each support showcases the majestic profile of a lion's head, a symbol of nobility and strength, rendered with remarkable artistry. The flowing mane and regal features are sculpted in high relief, creating a dramatic interplay of light and texture. The lustrous golden patina that graces these pieces now carries a hint of the countless stories and interactions they have witnessed over time.


The precise origins of these supports may be shrouded in history, with stylistic cues suggesting a European provenance—perhaps English or French. The era's fascination with the ornate and the exotic is palpably captured in the craftsmanship, which remains a testament to the artisan's skill.


These supports are perfectly suited for enhancing the decor of a sophisticated home bar, elevating the ambiance of a restaurant, or adding a touch of historical charm to a public house. They are not only practical, lending support and comfort as a footrest, but also serve as a striking conversation piece, imbuing any establishment with a sense of history and grandeur.
