Hi! My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your silver lion.

Could you very kindly attach photos of it and of the marks, and I'll identify the maker for you and give you a value.Many thanks,Robert. PS. Once you have the photos in your computer (if you are using a smart phone camera, just email them to yourself) it's then a simple matter to attach them. Just click on the paperclip icon, located above the text box where you are typing to me. If there's no paperclip, click on the "Add files" tab.You need to be logged in to the JustAnswer site to do this. You can’t do it from email.If you get stuck go here for help., if you can collar a passing teenager with an iPhone they would have photos posted here in about two minutes.Thanks, R.
