At mid-century, these impressive black panther bookends were already on their way to becoming elder statesman, hailing as they do from 1927. Quite heavy, they are made of cast iron and feature fierce panthers ready to pounce--or perhaps they are female lions, on the hunt. The onyx-like finish remains in excellent condition, as do the bookends overall. We should all look so good at 86. This is an exceptional pair of highly-functional and dignified antique bookends. Item # BK1212-05 Please keep in mind that although we do our best to stock only the finest pieces in the best possible shape, these are vintage items and do sometimes show expected wear. If there are any glaring issues, they will be noted in the description, otherwise please see the pics for condition and assume there will be a few minor signs of their many decades of service. We do take very large and detailed pics so as to give you as much visual information as possible, so please be sure to closely view them all and if you still need to ask any questions, please do so before making your purchase. Again, we RARELY stock pieces unless they look much better than their age would suggest, however please do not expect absolute perfection when purchasing these 40+ year old pieces. Additionally, ALL PIECES ARE METICULOUSLY CLEANED, most disassembled to do so if applicable. Great care is taken in making sure that there will be no surprises when purchasing our pieces, just the joy and benefits resulting from a time when everything was made better and with much pride. ALL TABLE AND DESK LAMPS ARE REWIRED, AS WELL AS MOST FLOOR LAMPS, UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED. In other words, all lamps are in acceptable and safe working condition when they leave our shop, however, we offer no warranties nor will we take any responsibility for the nature of their service, use or abuse once they are out of our possession. We do, of course stand by all of our sales and if there is a problem when your item arrives, please contact us immediately with the circumstances and we will do everything possible to make it right. Thanks again for your interest and we look forward to serving you!
