  • Description
    A pair of superb and rare 18th century Bath stone opposing recumbent lions with their paws resting on bones and with one lions mouth open.

    Around 160 million years ago, the land that became Combe Down in Somerset, was under a warm, shallow, tropical sea. Tiny fragments in this warm sea became coated with thin layers of calcium carbonate, forming egg-shaped stones known as ‘ooliths’. Over time they became compressed to form oolitic limestone – the stone that built Bath.The honey-coloured limestone became known as Bath Stone and subsequently, gave that name to the era in which it was formed. Its honey colouring gives the World Heritage City of Bath, England its distinctive appearance.
