Antique Abraham Lincoln President Bookends Armor Bronze, Orig. Finish + Labels For Sale
Wonderful figural bookends of Abraham Lincoln seated with a big book opened on his lap. All presented in 2-tone color: gold finish for Abe and a darker bronze finish for the seat and base. A very attractive contrast, in my estimation. Bronze-clad by Armor Bronze, original labels on the bottoms. Those labels say Taunton, MA which dates the pieces to the early 1930's (by which time the company had relocated from NYC). Condition is outstanding with one exception: one figure has a break in the cladding at the back of Abe's neck (see last photo). That one flaw essentially is invisible and irrelevant when the pieces are placed up against books for their intended purpose (see 2nd photo). Otherwise, both pieces practically are mint in structure and finish. Big pieces: 8¼ inches tall; 3⅝ inches side to side; 4⅝ inches front to back. And heavy at a little more than 7 pounds for the pair. US shipping only. FREE SHIPPING via USPS priority. I pack with care. I SPECIALIZE IN ANTIQUE BOOKENDS AND DECORATIVE OBJECTS.
