Description Rare pair of 18th Century French lead and limestone sculptures depicting courtly ladies heads on the bodies of sphinxes and standing on stepped limestone plinths. Although no doubt inspired by the sculptures of Madame de Pompador and Madame du Barry after the celebrated likenesses at Versailles, this pair appears unlike other known examples and would seem to represent other ladies.
