Pair English Regency early 19th c. patinated bronze models of a recumbent sphinx mounted on a Derbyshire black marble plateau stands. Wonderful detail and patina. Good overall condition - bases have chips to the edge.
The sphinxes are very well cast, finished and patinated. Each sphinx wears a fine headdress and beautifully modelled cape; musculature is quite defined. England circa 1820.
