This listing is for TWO PAIR of bookends — each pair is the same Dutch Couple boy and girl with the same original polychrome paint colors; one pair has darker patina than the other pair. Great mix and match possibilities on your bookshelf or display case; they would also make a wonderful anniversary or wedding gift — perhaps you have friends or family planning a Double Wedding!
Each pair made around 1925 by the Pompeian Bronze Company, vintage electroformed bronze-clad figural book ends (bronze over plaster); original polychrome paint (green, orange, white) in wonderful condition. Beautiful aged-bronze patina. The boy or young man has a traditional cap and a handkerchief around his neck; the girl or young woman a traditional Dutch bonnet. On the back, each is marked "Pompeian Bronze Co. 140".
This listing is for TWO PAIR of bookends, but you may instead purchase either pair individually:
The darker pair (SKU 21001270) with rich dark-chocolate patina, Each measures about 7" tall by 6" by 3" at the base, the pair weighs in at 7 lbs 9 oz. Some paint loss and small dents consistent with their age; no breaks or tears in the bronze cladding. He still has his original deep-blue Pompeian Bronze felt on the bottom.
The lighter pair (SKU 21001271) with brassy patina, Each measures about 7" tall by 6" by 3" at the base, the pair weighs in at 7 lbs 11 oz. Some paint loss and small dents consistent with their age; no breaks or tears in the bronze cladding. There are a couple of spots on her face where cleaning has removed the patina, difficult to see, unless the light is at just the right angle, see the photos.
