Vintage Wooden Bookends, Terrier Dogs With Headscarves/bandanas, C. 1930s For Sale




Vintage Wooden Bookends, Terriers with Headscarves/Bandanas, c. 1930s



These cute vintage bookends are made of fairly heavy blocks of wood (no particle board here) that have the graining of walnut, although I am not certain as to the exact type of wood. There is a terrier in a head scarf/bandana on each piece; the scarf is painted red with white polka dots. Each dog also has two painted eyes. Each bookend measures 5.75" tall by almost 4.75" wide by 3" deep. These primitive bookends almost have the appearance of folk art since there are some rough surfaces in the wood on the back and base (as though a hand plane was used). In addition, one of the pieces of wood used for the base has what seems to be an existing nail hole (obviously vintage) in it as though the carpenter chose a used piece of wood to make that bookend. The bookends have multiple signs of loving use including places where the finish is missing (varnish?) as well as scratches and cracks in the wood. Also, the tail of one of the dogs has been broken off; judging from the aged look of the wood at the break, this was done many years ago and is not a recent occurrence. Although showing their age, these cute vintage bookends would make a great addition to any Scottish Terrier collection. I welcome any questions that you may have. Please visit my store frequently at I try to list an additional item every week.
