Antique President Abraham Lincoln Bookends By Jennings Brothers, Original Finish For Sale
Wonderful bookends depicting the bust of Abraham Lincoln in relief. An excellent rendering of Abe's features with great detail, particularly in his beard. Notice, too, the texture in the background to provide an artistic contrast to the main image. Cast grey metal (a magnet does not stick) by Jennings Brothers, their initials JB and stock number 1618 visible on the backs. Circa 1929. Condition is very good, no damage whatsoever to Mr. Lincoln himself, but there are dings on the top edges of both pieces, as pictured. One piece sits with the tiniest wobble (only if you push it with your finger), indicating the base is just slightly out of true, probably from being dropped. Not noticeable visually. Metal plates on the bottoms, and the felts, look to be original. And best of all, the finish is intact and has aged to a rich, deep chocolate bronze. This is the most popular finish used by Jennings Brothers. 6 1/2 inches tall; 5 inches wide; 3 inches deep. And fairly heavy, the pair weighing more than 5 pounds. Perfect gift for the Lincoln admirer in your family. US shipping only. USPS priority mail flat rate, insurance and delivery confirmation. I SPECIALIZE IN ANTIQUE BOOKENDS AND DECORATIVE OBJECTS.
