Condition: These fine antique bookends are in very good - fine original condition - they are structurally sound and un-compromised but one shows some discoloration on the base in the middle left as seen in detail here. Other light finish losses and rubbing in their desirable copper verdi green factory color which exhibits a nice untouched warm patina as seen. The bases have the original felt bottoms & sit flush, overall a sublime old and rare pair of art deco machine age industrial design bookends that display just beautifully.

The photos here say it all, these are phenomenal examples. 100% guaranteed vintage and original as always from GrapefruitMoonGallery.
