This exquisite plaster sphinx straight from King Tuts Tomb, came to us from the LaPorte County Theatre. We purchased this piece from a woman who bought it at auction when the theatre was torn down in the early 70’s. It was in terrible shape when we got it. We hired a plaster restorer to make repairs. We added the new finish to match its original exactly.
The sphinx is mounted on a gorgeous slab of blue/green/gray mix marble.
The sphinx has a sister. We restored her for the LaPorte County Museum and she sits on display there in the old theatre section on the first floor.
This piece is beautiful, historical and rare. It is rare because plaster, although heavy, is extremely delicate. Most don’t survive because they are not handled correctly.
