An exceptional English Regency 19th c. patinated bronze model of a recumbent sphinx mounted on a Derbyshire black marble plateau stand. Wonderful detail and patina. Good overall condition - base has a chip to the edge.
The sphinx is very well cast, finished and patinated. He is very well modelled and his muscle tone is excellent. The sphinx wears a fine headdress and beautifully modelled cape over his back and between his arms. England circa 1820.
We have a second if you desire a pair.
Measures 10" x 4 1/4".
