SKU 21001263

Jovial and good-humored... “Good Book” made circa 1924 by the Armor Bronze Company, a pair of vintage electroformed bronze-clad figural book ends. This design features a rotund man — probably a monastic, monk, ascetic, given his robes and the knotted rope around his waist. Grinning broadly or laughing while he reads the book in his lap, he sits cross-legged wearing a tasseled cap (a bit Santa Clause like). Marked on the back: "(c) RUHL" (sculptor), with the Armor Bronze shopmark on the side (circle in a shield).

SPECS: Measures about 6.7" tall by 5.1" wide by 4.9" deep, the pair weighs in at 8 lbs 3 oz. Although there is some significant loss of cladding, to my eye it detracts little from this great pair. One of them has a triangular 12mm x 22mm piece missing on his back (that would normally be up against a book), and a larger loss of cladding on the bottom. The other one of the pair is in better shape with cladding intact.
