A Pair of Plaster Sphinxes

Benjamin Shout and his son Robert were one of the most successful plaster figure makers of the Regency period. At Brighton Pavilion, a pair of gilded plaster torcheres supported by Three Graces is signed ‘Published March 1803 by Robt. Shout, High Holborn, London’. These smaller ornaments depict a pair of facing sphinxes on marble bases. One of the figures is inscribed ‘R. Shout Holborn’ on the side of its plinth.
