Object Description

A characteristic sphinx sculpture nicely carved into finely grained limestone, dating from the 1800s. This sphinx is of interesting scale and makes a striking decorative item for an interior, especially for those with an interest in Egyptology and iconic ancient architecture! It is over 200 years old, dating from the Grand Tour era, and as such there is some wear to the finish. The body of this stone sphinx sculpture is well preserved with details of the carved feet, tail, face and headdress present.

Object Condition

Good structural condition. Historic repairs around the base. Traces of old paint. Small chips.
