I purchased one of these cornice lions last week, it came from the 1915 annex of the Boatmans’ bank building, St Louis.
27″H 11″W 17″D, 130#
The building was originally 7 stories high, but in 1920 they added 4 more floors on after removing the roof and cornice, and then either replacing the original cornice or re-installing it all. There were 69 lions that were scaled for a 7 story building, and when it was 11 stories they looked someone “small” scaled.
