Pair of Sphinges (sphinxes)
A pair of sphinges in white jasper, on pale blue bases. As usual, they have lost their nozzles; and also their wings; these are replacements. Nevertheless, a rare and attractive pair, with interesting provenance. Harry Buten’s inscription gives the date he acquired them.
Provenance: Buten Museum.
Pictured in Wedgwood Rarities by Harry Buten.
