Vintage Cast Iron American Indian Chief Bookends Salesman's Samples Early 1900's For Sale
cast iron bookends are coated or painted in gold with a satin finish. They stand 3 ½ inches, 4 inches wide and 1 ½
inches front to back, and each weighs
2/3 pound. Interestingly these bookends are not mirror images, as are many bookends. Each can be used on the right end of a row of shelved books.
Foundry that manufactured these bookends was A.C.W. Co. Most likely these
small bookends were made by the foundry to give away as salesman’s samples,
which was traditional in the old days when there were many more smokestacks
than there are today. These Indian
Chiefs are a reminder of that Industrial Age.
