A lasting tribute to the endless herds that once roamed the American West, "Buffalo Hunt", made Art Deco Period circa 1925, a pair of vintage solid-bronze bas-relief frieze-style book ends. These bookends depict a dynamic hunting scene, featuring two cowboys on horseback, horses rearing and one cowboy lancing the prey with a spear, tufts of grass in the foreground and a mountain range in the background. Gorgeous rich dark patina.
Once inhabiting the grasslands of North America in massive herds and a fixture of The Great Plains of the Native American Indian, bison were hunted close to extinction during the 19th and 20th centuries — these bookends evoke that era, in solid bronze, a fabulous pair!
SPECS: Each measures about 4.75" tall by 5" wide by 2.35" deep, the pair weighs in at 4 lbs 12 oz. Each is stamped SOLID BRONZE on the back. No. 270 in Kuritzky and De Costa.
