Pair of Classical Revival silver on copper lavabo style wall pockets, each having a serpentine top with beaded edge, central lion's mask and small reeded basin flanked by gilt metal figures over a large open basin. 13" H x 13" W x 6 1/2" D. Likely Continental, Mid 19th century. Note: Lion's heads are screwed to the backs, but do not contain an aperture for water to flow into the basin, so these were likely for decorative use or as planters, and not intended as lavabos. Provenance: The estate of John Donnelly, Nashville, TN. CONDITION: Some minor scattered wear and oxidation, one pocket has a 4" adhesive strip mounted to it which we have not attempted to remove. The other has small holes in the base for water drainage. Overall good condition.
