Oscar Bach Copper Alloy Bookends - C.1924 Art Deco Nouveaux Antique Asian For Sale

Offered are a pair of original C.1924 Oscar Bach bookends made of copper alloy with applied patina depicting a boy with his arms around a goose, framed by an octagon panel of foliage whose design shows a distinct Asian influence. They stand 7 1/2" high, the back panel is 6 1/2" wide, and the base is 6" wide and 3 3/4" deep. These are in beautiful condition except for a small spot of corrosion on each, as you can see in pictures 5 and 7. These spots are not as pronounced under normal lighting conditions as they are in these pictures. Both bookends are signed on the rear of the base.
For those unacquainted with the work of Oscar Bach, he was a metallic artist from Germany who worked in the early 20th Century. He traveled extensively through Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa studying decorative styles, history, materials, and techniques; eventually moving to New York City in 1911 where he opened a metal design studio with his brother Max. Their studio produced decorative items that catered to America's wealthy, and also performed custom work for important clients including a stainless steel mural for the lobby of the Empire State Building.
