Vintage Cement Lion Pair
Leo & Lester
Here is a new and unique piece that came in today!! This is an Antique Hog Lead or Hog Holder by Dr. Rinehart called the Handy Hog Holder Pat Nov. 24th, 1931. These were used by farmers and vets when putting a ring in a hogs nose. The purpose of the rings were mainly to keep the pigs from trying to dig out from under a fence. Vets and Farmers needed a way to safely hold these hogs during this process to keep them safe from the hogs. Pigs may be kind of cute but they can be extremely dangerous animals so this item was invented to help with that problem!! This is currently for sale in booth #3 Here at the Dover Antique Mall and waiting to become part of your collection!
This is a really nice, original pair of cement decorative lions. These would have sat on a pillar or base usually in front of an entrance to a building or home. The staff has lovingly given these brothers the names of Leo and Lester!! These are currently for sale in booth 121 Here at the Dover Antique Mall and waiting for a great home!
