SKU 21001306

Early WWI era bronze-clad, “Liberty Bell” made circa 1917 by the Armor Bronze Company, a pair of vintage electroformed bronze-clad figural book ends. The design features the Liberty Bell suspended in a timbered frame; a bald eagle, with its wings spread, adorns the back. No. 2090 in Kuritzky and De Costa.

On the front: “1776, Proclaim Liberty”, and on the bell, "LMXXXVX Proclaim in Philda by order, Pass and Stow, Philda, MDCCLIII"

On the back: ‘Its tongue proclaimed, “Liberty throughout all the land, to all the inhabitants thereof” as it rang out the birth of a new nation’ — the inscription on the actual bell in Philadelphia reads: “Proclaim Liberty throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants thereof Lev. XXV X”. Also on the back of each bookend: (c) symbol, the Armor Bronze shopmark (circle in a shield), and the year 1917.

SPECS: Measures about 6.7" tall by 6" wide by 3.4" deep, the pair weighs in at 6 lbs 1 oz. Small 2mm by 8mm missing cladding on the front of one of the bookends (on the vertical timber to the left of the bell); And on the other bookend there is a “drip” on unknown material on the back above and left of the © symbol. See the photos. Very dark color, possibly paint and patina.
