SKU 21001311

Very Art Deco pair of bookends, Solid bronze Ruffed Grouse or Ptarmigan on a beautiful highly figured green onyx base, made circa 1920's. In classic pose, these ruffed grouse are in "drumming" position with tail feathers up. Origin and maker are unknown to us, but other figural book ends with marble or onyx bases were often made in France or Austria. While many folks might describe these bookends as having a "marble base", onyx is in fact a form of quartz.

SPECS: Each measures about 6.9" tall overall, including the green onyx base, which measures about 4" by 3" by .9" thick, the pair weighs in at 6 lbs 1 oz. Each is stamped "BRONZE".

A very fine pair of vintage bookends for the Art Deco collector — or the ornithologist, birder, bird watcher, or upland game hunter in your family.
