Clevedon Salerooms September Specialist Sale saw yet again an increase in the number of internet bidders, proving that the formula of careful cataloguing, professional photography with multiple images and a condition report are key for bidders and what differentiates Salerooms.

The 21cm long bronze realised £7,200. The geometric lines and stance of the lion with its open snout bearing a resemblance to field artillery. The king of the jungle roaring on the battle field?
