How old are the lions at the back entrance of the British Museum? Were they procured from China?
Doing some research and would just like to know how long those lions at the back entrance of the British Museum have been there and if they were originally from CHINA!
There are carved stone lions, having crossed front paws, by Sir George Frampton – part of the Burnet Tait scheme for the Edward VII Galleries. Date from just before WW1.
