Consulat Period "Return from Egypt" Fireplace Fender

Gilt and patinated bronze fireplace fender in the "Return from Egypt" style. Two sphinx sit facing each other on both ends of the fender. Each sphinx is resting on a rectangular base that is embellished with a mask over a sunburst motif. The central bar is embellished with palmettes, wreaths, and a central diamond. Consulate period.



After Napoleon's campaign in Egypt (1798-1801), "Egyptomania" swept through France. The trend was renewed during the Consulate period and continued through the Empire period. During these periods, a significant number of monuments and decorative objects with Egypt-themed motifs were produced. Egyptomania was solidly implanted France's decorative arts repertoire and touched all categories of production, as seen here with this fireplace fender.



Circa: 1800
