Rarest Antique Abraham Lincoln Bookends By Ronson, Orig. Finish, Near-mint Large For Sale

Rarest Antique Abraham Lincoln Bookends By Ronson, Orig. Finish, Near-mint Large

Wonderful bookends depicting Abraham Lincoln seated on a bench, stove pipe hat next to him. The official title is "Seated Lincoln" but the design is more commonly known as the "Borglum Lincoln", based on the 1911 statue by Gutzon Borglum, the sculptor even more famous for creating the carvings of Mount Rushmore. The original statue can be found in Newark, NJ.
Detail is incredible, as I believe the photographs attest. No maker's mark but a fellow collector tells me he has this same set (same dimensions, just different color finish) which still has a paper Ronson label on the bottom. The quality certainly is consistent with the Ronson pieces I have known. Circa 1930.
Cast grey metal (magnet does not stick) with a lovely bronze-colored finish.
Condition practically is mint. No damage to the metal, nothing dented, bent, broken off or glued back on; only the tiniestnicks and scuffs. Finish also is almost perfect, a few wear spots on the bases. Bottom metal plates are intact (often one or both are missing) and the felts probably are original.
The claim of "rarest" in my title refers to the size of these pieces - 6 1/4 inches tall; 6 inches wide; 3 7/8 inches deep. A quick search of Lincoln bookends will show that this design is not so rare...but look closely at those listings to see that those bookends are a mere 4 1/2 inches tall, and proportionately smaller scale all around.
Not only are mine large in stature, but also surprisingly heavy at more than 4 pounds EACH PIECE.
A must-have for the Lincoln collector.
US shipping only. USPS parcel post, insurance and delivery confirmation.
