ITEM: You are offerding on a pair of antique original C. 1920s Art Deco Egyptian revival in design aesthetic cast iron bookends. These are really handsome and well articulated with original surface finish and a warm patina, a beautiful set of bookends in a stylistic idealized exotic modernist art deco manner. These are tombs essentially and are adorned with scarabs and Egyptian symbols.
The Paris Exhibition in 1925 focused primarily on the Art Deco movement in France. However, the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in November of 1922 spawned a worldwide fascination with all things Egyptian, further contributing to the evolving aesthetic of Art Deco. Egyptomania, as it came to be known, spread throughout the globe like wild fire and influenced everything from architecture to jewelry to furniture. Hence, we recognize the classic Egyptian Ziggurat (staggered tier/zigzag/pyramid shape) as a classic Art Deco motif. An ideal pair for any bookend enthusiast or collector.
These weigh 9 lbs as a pair and are very large substantial forms Each measures 6 1/2" tall by 5 1/2" x 2 1/4" deep
