Vintage Monterey Art Studios Bookends | Dante Bookends | Antique Bathing Cowboy Bookends

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Fun porcelain bookends of a bathing cowboy/gun slinger/prospector . The bookends show a man bathing while wearing a cowboy hat, smoking a thick cigar, and with the weapon/pistol/holster and bullets belt hanging nearby. Oh, he is also wearing the boots while bathing.

The bookends were made in 1980 by Monterey Art Studio and also have a "Dante" mark. They are labeled 870 on the bottom. They are bronze/chocolate brown in color. Just beautiful American bookends with lot of character.

They are on the heavier side and can support larger books. They are 8 lbs and 12 oz combined. Each is 9 inches in height, 5 inches in width, and 6 inches in length.

There are some scratches but the buyer can select to hide them with marker pens if desired. Some chose to leave the marks as they are to highlight the age of the item.

This would make a fun gift for anyone interested in the Wild West or Westerns. These are rare and hard to find. They are quite a conversation starter.
