There are around 50-100 high definition super-sized pictures at the bottom of this page. A rare and beautiful decorative pair, Ive never seen them in the natural bronze before, they are mostly gilt which looks rather garish, these have a timeless class and charm which takes us back to the early neoclassical styling. The casting is simply exquisite, you have lovely recumbent sphinxs sitting proudly on top, the front and side panels have ornate flowers and reefs, to the centre of the front we find the Roman Fauns head with the typical laughing expression. These are rare and valuable items in brilliant condition throughout, they have been sympathetically cleaned and very lightly waxed and polished throughout, they are in gallery condition. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
