Pair of 1920's Sphinx Form Lamps


Pair of Sphinx Form Lamps, circa 1920's. The 1922 discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt, and these lamps reflect that interest. They have a great verdigris patina to the sphinxes and wonderful original Chinese Red color wooden bases. They measure 21.75" height to the top of the shades, and 7.5" height to the top of the sphinx heads.
