[Choose! Lion] Lion, lion, lions!
Lisa Larson is a lion!
Among them, the largest one is the maxi size. A large number has arrived from the Swedish workshop for the first time in a while. With a big face and small feet, it’s big enough to hug. What would it be like if a lion came into your front door, into your living room, into your everyday life? I wonder how I would feel if I looked up at those sparkling eyes.
This time, it’s been a long time since I’ve had a choice of Lisa Larson! This is your chance to choose your favorite from among many children. Look carefully at the facial expressions, the color of the mane, the texture of the soil, and enjoy the craftsman’s breathing. From May 1st, all lions will be at the directly managed store “TONKACHI,6 (Daikanyama)”! Along with the vintage Lion Maxi. Please come and see us!

A masterpiece created in the 1960s, the lion from the “Africa Series”. This lion was born in 1964 during Lisa’s Gustavsberg era and was produced until the 1980s. The idea came to Lisa while she was making a vase on the potter’s wheel. The current product was designed again in the 1990s and continues to be loved by a wide range of generations. Risa is the pottery that sparked a huge boom in Japan in the 2000s. It is extremely rare that a vintage lion maxi size remains in good condition. This ceramic piece is coveted by collectors and is hard to find.
