Paul Herzel - Bronze Clad Bear And Bull Bookends Dated 1922 :
Paul Herzel is a famed American animal sculptor, painter and illustrator who lived from 1876 to 1956. This bronze clad bear/bull set of bookends has been in our family since the 1950’s. The date of 1922 is found next to Paul Herzel's name on each piece. The Bull’s horn and ear show minor cracks in the cladding. There are also minor dings in the bases but typical of pieces 91 years old. The bronze covering has a very nice chocolate colored patina. The bull stands 7 inches tall and approximately 7 inches long. The bear stands almost six inches to the shoulders and is approximately 7 inches long. The pair weighs about 7 3/4 pounds.
