Antique French Egyptian Revival Frosted Glass Sphinx Paperweight by Saint Louis

About

A rare antique pressed glass model of a sphinx by Saint Louis - the premiere French 19th and 20th century glass house. Purportedly, Saint Louis exhibited a similar sphinx model the 1876 World's Fair Centennial Exhibition. A limited number of these were then manufactured for a brief period of time in a few size and color variations. This is one of the smaller desk-size versions in frosted glass. Simply a fantastic paperweight from the height of the Egyptian Revival. Measures: Length ca. 4 1/2 in.
