    Found these gems at a local shop. They are quite heavy and about 30 inches in length. I assume that they were used at an entryway to a building or as garden statuary.

      wow! wonderful!! from the 1920s or an earlier Egyptian Revival period?
    2. vetraio50 vetraio50, 1 month ago
      Interesting indeed. Surely they would be based on an original item. The hieroglyphics look realistic. Tantalising !!!

      vintagelamp, Beautiful.

      I suspect that ho2cultcha is on the right track with his 1920s-vintage suggestion, as that's when Egyptology was a popular craze because of the excavation of the tomb of Tutankhamen.

      I wonder if the pair of those statues didn't originally sit on top of the end of a pair of low walls flanking a staircase or stoop, e.g.:

      (A pair of marble greyhound statues at Brodsworth Hall in South Yorkshire)

      vetraio50, Yup, are the hieroglyphics just decorative, or an inscription, huh?
    4. vetraio50 vetraio50, 1 month ago
      Just wondering if the hieroglyphs goal around the base or are they only on one side ???

      ho2cultcha,
      I am a 1920s fanatic as well as an Egyptian fanatic, so I could not resist.

      keramikos,
      That is how I pictured them in their original location. I know the guy who placed these in the shop, so I'll ask if he has any other info. If he does, I will post here.
      Thank you!

      vetraio50,
      I believe that the hieroglyphs are just on the one side. The pieces are currently at the house that I am moving into shortly. I will check again.
      Thanks!
