condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Custom
model name / number: MGM Studios
size / dimensions: 36-38 inches round
The Original MGM Studios (aka Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures) Iconic Lion was used on sets, around the studios, and for marketing. The studios opened on April 17, 1924, it was based in Beverly Hills, California and produced the highest number of films in the 1930s; 50 per year. The MGM Holdings recently sold to Amazon in March 2022 for $8.45 Billion USD.

This beautiful cast was likely a duplicate but rare to say the least. It was a gift to an employee who worked there between the 1960s and 1990s.

The size is approx. 36-38 inches round. The relief depth is approximately 12-13 inches and it weighs approximately 20-25 pounds. It is made of a foam with epoxy and coated with plaster. It’s mounted on 3/4 wood; relatively light but it appears heavier. It’s very solid.

The MGM studios were one of the largest and most successful but when it merged, many of the items had been sold off or given to VIPs. This rare iconic MGM Holdings memorabilia will live on for ever and without a doubt increase in value.
