ITEM: You are bidding on a pair of antique original C. 1928 pair of bronze clad figural Pompeian Bronze figural bookends featuring a strong and stylized Art Nouveau aesthetic featuring Dantes and Beatrice - Florentine poets who's love for each other inspired the Divine Comedy.

These are a heavy and well articulated with polychrome paint details still on the original surface as seen. This set is finished in a bronze color plating. Each bookend stands 5 1/2" tall, 4 1/2" wide, 2  3/4" deep and weighs over 3 lbs. They are in very good near fine condition. These antique bookends were made using the much coveted and highly collectible bronze-clad method of production which utilized electricity via an electrode built into the plaster mold of the subject piece. Bronze was then electro-formed onto the plaster mold. This was extremely innovative in the 1920's. Unfortunately, it was also very costly for labor and materials. Some bookends could take as long as three days to be completed. The process created some of the most detailed and sought after bookends we see today.

These are sensational with very detailed features and a great untouched warm patina and retaining the original surface. J
ust beautiful old original examples in a refined and harmonious American Arts & Crafts // Art Nouveau design aesthetic.
