Pair of Cast Stone Sphinxes

About

Stunning pair of early 20th century Egyptian Revival cast stone garden sphinxes. The faces on these remain crisp as the bodies have gathered a nice texture and patina. These are fashioned after the sphinx and were most likely made after the discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922. These came from the estate of Louise Jessie who ran Epping Forrest Antiques in Virginia who was a very well-known and admired Virginia dealer.
