Pair of Carved Giltwood Sphinx Form in Neoclassical Caricature

About

Probably Mdme. Pompadour and Mdme. DuBarry caricatures, popular motif in the 9th century. On coral colored marble bases, and probably of architectural origin. Usual aging issues with giltwood, bleeding of red basecoat, nicks, dings, age cracks and other small losses to the form and finish. Distressed finish but in a pretty way. Repairs and touchups. Measurements in this listing are approximate as each is hand carved and configured differently. The taller of the two is given. Overall sturdy.
