Antique Bronze Clad Greek Roman Scribe Bookends Pompeian Bronze Original Paint:
$725


From my personal collection, wonderful set of bookends depicting a kneeling scribe from classical times. An original Pompeian Bronze catalogue gives the title of this set as "Literature."
And while not marked as such (these would have had foil labels on the bottoms), they most definitely ARE Pompeian: the green and red colors absolutely are hallmarks of Pompeian's work. In fact, I have 10 other (different) sets of bookends in these same colors, and many of those do bear Pompeian identification. Circa 1922.
Condition is excellent: no breaks in the cladding, no mashed corners, nothing dented, just a small crease in the right shoulder of one figure. Paint all is original, no touch-ups, with just a few spots of wear and discoloration.
These are substantial pieces, standing (kneeling) 7 inches tall; 6 inches wide; 2 1/4 inches deep. And heavy, weighing over 4 pounds EACH PIECE.
US shipping only. USPS parcel post, insurance and delivery confirmation.
