Pair of Sphinxes

This pair of recumbent Sphinxes are in the manner of the Regency Egyptian revival, inspired by furniture maker, connoisseur and collector Thomas Hope (1769–1831). Hope took his Grand Tour in Turkey, Egypt and Syria and when he subsequently made his London house open to public view, one room was entirely devoted to Egyptology.
