If we’re to learn “The Riddle of the Sphinx” it won’t be from this pair! They maintain a placid silence, gazing-out at things (perhaps?) beyond our understanding. They will, however, hold-up your books with loyalty and a great deal of style. Made in the 1920’s or 1930’s—a time when both Art Deco and Egyptology were enchanting the West—this tight-lipped duo will bring a touch of “Giza Chic” to your office, den or bookshelf.
More bookends tomorrow.
