Patinated bronze saddle pommel with a stylised lion's head design.
Northern Italy, Padova ? Circa 1600.
Stylistically, our saddle pommel is close to the Etruscan models found in the many excavations of the Italian Renaissance. The workshops of artists such as Severo da Ravenna or Desiderio da Firenze were strongly inspired by the antique models freshly discovered in their productions of small bronzes intended for a clientele of amateurs and major sponsors of the clergy.
