Don Quixote and Sancho Panza Spanish Bookends - Man of La Mancha Figures - Hand Carved Wood Characters

A magnificent pair of wooden bookends. One bookend features the carved figure of Don Quixote, who is seated on a large log with a book (probably about chivalry) open in his hand. The other hand is held to his chest as though he is enamored with what he has read. The figure on the other bookend is, of course, his neighbor and friend Sancho Panza, who stands with one leg resting on a small log as he patiently listens.

There are no signatures or markings other than a piece of paper that has been taped to the underside of the Sancho bookend. It looks blank--like whatever was on there has faded away BUT it may be that something is written on the underside. I did not look.

From the rustic dark style of the bases, I really believe that this pair was made in Spain. They are a little dusty in the creases! But in very nice shape and totally charming! You can use them either as bookends or simply as art.

Condition: Some loss of stain on the wood bases. One puzzling thing is Don Quixote's beard--it is usually pointed and this one is flat on the bottom which makes me wonder whether the tip is broken. However, the color of that area is the same as the rest of the beard so it may just be the way it was made.

Size: approximately 9" high, 3" wide, 6" deep
