This superb bronze candlestick is cast as a winged Sphinx in French Empire style.
The tail is curled to form the handle. The base being almost rococo in style. This is a truly super piece, oozes quality and the casting is so very nice.
The patina is deep and rich. Condition is mainly excellent with just a little wear, commensurate with age. With the exception of a piece at the bottom of the tabard at the front, which is missing. I'm not sure if it is a bit that was missed during the casting or if it has broken off, although there is no sharpness or difference in patina. Please see the photographs for clarification.
Measures: Base - 4 1/8 inches x 7 1/8 inches tall
