Art Deco Bronze Elephant Bookends*

Item Description

Pair of Art Deco bronze bookends of an uncommonly large size, depicting elephants leaning forward and bracing themselves in order to hold up a row of books.

Pushing with the flattened front part of their heads, their trunks are partially curled beneath their open mouths and they sport short, sturdy tusks.

With a dark brown patina, these hefty and somewhat stylised animals have a great look to them.

Set on attractively coloured and shaped marble bases, lined with leather beneath.

One elephant is showing a couple of patches of verdigris on its leg simply due to age (see last photo for close-up), but they are otherwise in very good condition.

Dating from circa 1920’s and approximately 33 cm long overall, with the bases measuring around 27 X 15.5 cm.

Ref: 13936
