And my wife Gail loves Faithful & Firm. Thank you and Happy Holidays.
I can remember my first time crossing the Bridge of Lions and saw the massive lions guarding the bridge and since that time, I have been looking for something that I can have in my home to remind me of St Augustine and the lions. After eight years, I found the Carrara marble lions and little did I know that they have names.....Faithful and Firm! I will be enjoying them for a long time. Thank you for coming up with the idea of producing the Carrara marble replicas of Faithful and Firm, a job well done and I hope that so many others will get to enjoy them as I do.
As a repeat customer of St. Augustine Loves Lions I must say that I have been extremely happy with every transaction. The quality is absolutely superb and the reason I ordered the first time. However, aside from quality, the price is fair, the handling and packaging preserves the integrity of the items and the time in which the items are sent is simply phenomenal. I would most definitely recommend St. Augustine Love Lions to anyone!!!! I purchased my first set of lions for myself and since then have purchase 5 additional sets as gifts and everyone loves them!!!!
Got 'em and they are awesome!
The lions were delivered this morning and are even more beautiful than I had imagined. The recipients will be thrilled to get them.
I received the lions yesterday. I love them, thank you for making them available.
I purchased 3 sets of these beautiful lions for my 3 grown children for Christmas last year. They arrived quickly and very securely packaged. Not all of my children continue to live here in Saint Augustine and I thought it would be a great addition to their homes. All 3 (and spouses) were very happy to receive them and as I have visited them in their homes, I noticed that the lions are prominently displayed. I started to have lion envy!! I ordered my own set today and can't wait to display them in my home!
Thank you for the marble lions! They are a beautiful and welcome addition to my home office.
Wherever we have been we have always managed to collect local memorabilia. We just added a pair of marble replica lions to our St. Augustine collection. Faithful & Firm now guard the entrance to our home. They are kind of guarding the fort. Gail was most helpful in processing our order and Jeff helped by delivering them. Thank you Gail and Jeff.
Hey Gail. Got the lions. Look Good. Thanks.
Just wanted you to know that the lions were a big hit at Christmas. They are proudly displayed on either side of a print of the bridge by a local artist in a lit cabinet.

My first exposure to the lions was in 1955 at age 6 during a visit to St. Augustine. I still vaguely remember seeing the fort, the alligator farm & the beautiful pure white marble lions guarding the Bridge of Lions. In 1987 my wife and young children returned to St. Augustine for what turned out to be multiple summer and Thanksgiving vacations on Anastasia Island. We quickly fell in love with the city and the island which ultimately led to my wife and I moving here permanently in 2001. During the past 30+ years, we've passed our beloved lions hundreds of times while crossing the bridge, always with a great sense of pride. Now, thanks to you, we have a pair of our own Carrara marble lions on proud display in our home and can enjoy them every day. They are perfect in every way! Many thanks for making this wonderful gift available to all of us "lion lovers" in St. Augustine.
We received our loins two days ago. We are very pleased with them. They are of very good quality material , and of beautiful art work. They look like they just walked off the bridge. Again, we are very happy with them !
I received my St. Augustine Lions yesterday from Gail, who was so kind to deliver them to me. I am moving next week to AZ, and I had wanted something from here to take with me. These are the perfect reminder of this special place. These marble lions are simply exquisite, and the detail is remarkable. They are replicas, including inscriptions, of the actual lions on the bridge. I will always treasure them as I know my children will. We all love St. Augustine.
My husband is very happy with his pair of lions. I think he was almost speechless for a few minutes! They arrived in perfect condition. The Carrara marble is absolutely stunning!
I love my lions. I am proud of my city and proudly display my lions right in my living room!! I just had guests over this last weekend and they loved them too! Thank you for loving our town too! Can't wait to see them on the website.
Of course my lions want to be included so have sent a few pics of Firm and Faithful. The first, guarding the watercolor of the fort is how they are usually placed. Couldn't resist posing them next to other favorite objects.
Wow! Finally something that is of high quality that reflects the beauty of My Town. I ordered the statues on a Sunday and received them two days later. We even received a personal email from the owner of the company!! I bike over the Bridge of Lions about 6 times a week and these are exact replicas. They even glisten in the sunlight! This would be a great addition to any collection! The pair looks better in person than the photos, just like a Saint Augustine sunrise. Better in person!!
They are beautiful. Thanks for doing this - what a wonderful memory to keep and remind us of all our trips to St. Augustine! They watch over our dining room. Love them! Every time I see them I think of St. Augustine.
Just received the Lions! Thank you. They are beautiful and we can’t wait for our friends to open them. Merry Christmas!
Got my lions the other day and I just LOVE them!!!!
I purchased a set of lions online as an anniversary gift and they are beautiful! I can't say enough great things about the customer service I received as well, it was second to none! Fast shipping and beautifully packed. This is by far the nicest item from St. Augustine that my wife and I have ever purchased. Thank you for all the wonderful memories that these will bring back for years to come!
We love our St. Augustine Lions so much and have given several pair to family and friends. They are such a unique gift with special meaning
Faithful & Firm are proud of their friend and fan, Eric, for winning Best of St. Augustine as Best Pharmacist. Eric said the boys love the award. Thanks for giving your boys a good home, Eric.
I absolutely love these lions! They are the epitome of symbolism for St Augustine. The detail and quality are exceptional. I know they will be a family heirloom!
Love the Lions. The detail is amazing. They look incredible. Bought these for my mom to display in our living room. Have had many great comments. I will be glad to recommend them to purchase there own. Thank you.
Wanted to take a moment to share with you how pleased I am with the Marble Lions. They were purchased for my wife's 64th birthday. I was so excited when they arrived, I could not wait for her Birthday, and gave them to her that day (which by the way was 48 hours from the time I ordered them- incredible). The quality of the carving, and of the marble itself was far beyond my expectations. The recreation is exact to the original, and I remain amazed at the craftsmanship. Through the years for vacation with our daughters we would visit St Augustine and in 2000 I received a transfer to Jacksonville, whereby we immediately relocated to St Augustine. Our daughters grew up here, and we have since remained, falling in love with the city,it's wonderful citizens, and of course the Lions that honor our beautiful bridge. The Marble Lions will become a family heirloom, as we plan to leave one to each of our daughters as a reminder, of the joy we shared as a family in St Augustine. I'm grateful for your diligence in offering such a remarkable recreation , and recommend to anyone that is looking for a true momento of our beautiful city to not hesitate in this purchase. A true work of art.
The lions were better than advertised, shipped super quickly, were very well packed and look great! The customer service is also excellent
We ordered the set of Lions, which arrived in perfect condition. They are beautiful, with great workmanship & detail. They are the Lions of the “Bridge” in miniature. Every time we look at them, it’s as if we’re traveling into the City of St. Augustine.
We bought the Lions for a childhood friend, whom I played Little League Baseball with in 1956-57-58. We lost touch after high school in 1965. We reconnected about 5 years ago and through visits they embraced St. Augustine to the point they relocated here from Maryland. They were touched by the beautiful gift and immediately displayed them in a place of prominence in their lovely home. We relocated from near Annapolis, MD, have been here for nine years, and love it. We enjoy sharing St. Augustine with our family and friends who come to visit. The replica Lions are a wonderful way to remember their visits. We will be purchasing more. Thank you for giving us this opportunity. We will be purchasing more.
We LOVE our lions and they look GREAT on the mantle.
The two Lions are exactly has depicted. They are heavy, solid, beautiful! Symbolic of St. Augustine. I also love the free coffee mug with the Lions on it.
I ordered these marble St. Augustine lions as a 60th birthday gift for my husband. They are unique and the fact that we love the Bridge of Lions, these will be a special gift that we will both cherish for years to come.
We absolutely love them! A "must-have" for anyone for whom St. Augustine is a special place. The craftsmanship is superb. A treasure to be handed down as family heirlooms.
Lions for Massachusetts! The pair of lions was just what I had been looking for to take home to Massachusetts as a wonderful memento of our winters in St. Augustine (hopefully, there will be many more)!
We are so pleased with our purchase of the statuettes of "Fiel y Firme" that flank the entrance of our town bridge. They have been so beautifully replicated in detail in the same marble used in the originals. We have been receiving compliments from all who have seen them in our home.
Purchased a set of these beautiful miniature replicas of the famous Florida Bridge Lions, "Firm" & "Faithful." They are extremely well-made: a stately and unique addition to our Old City collection. Highly recommended; a great gift for anyone who loves St. Augustine!
