Well-made iron Minerva Bookends produced in Wallingford, Connecticut, by HL Judd, about 1925. Minerva was the helmeted goddess whom Romans from the 2nd century BC onward equated with the Greek goddess Athena. She was virgin goddess of poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, weaving, crafts, and magic. Here, she appears with the symbolic lamp of wisdom which is sometimes linked with her image. This pair of bookends is in nice condition with age-appropriate wear and a fine coppery patina. About 4 3/4 inches tall, 3 3/4 inches wide, and just under 2 inches deep at the base.
