Pair of gilded carved wood sphinx figures in carved wood frames designed as laurel wreaths, also in original gold leaf, c1800-1810. The figures are mounted on the original moss green silk velvet. This pair of French sphinx carvings were created at the time of Napoleon Bonaparte's Egyptian campaign of 1798 to 1801. The campaign was rather disappointing, but its decorative impact was huge. Each hand carved wood frame measures 30 inches wide by 22 inches high and three inches thick. The sphinxes each measure 8 by 11 inches.
