Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
A neat set of antique bookends. The bookends are made of Walnut or Mahogany wood and feature an interesting Heraldry design that includes Sea Lion or Seals and an unusual leaf motif. The carving is well done and you can tell it was by a skilled craftsman. I believe these are European in original and possibly from the Black Forest region of Germany. The bookends are large at 18" x 5 7/8" x 6 1/2" high. The carved bookends are in very good overall condition and have a lovely warm patina. The only thing to note is some wear to the finish, see photos. The bookends are made to fold away when not in use. They would make a lovely addition to an antique desk top.
