Art Deco Bookends: Semi Nude Diana the Huntress on Horseback

In Roman mythology, Diana (lt. "heavenly" or "divine") was the goddess of the hunt, the moon and birthing, and she was associated with wild animals and woodland, having the power to talk to and control animals. These lovely bookends feature Diana in action, spear in hand, her rearing horse braced against a classic Art Deco geometric boundary in which Diana has plunged her spear, all cleverly mounted atop two books. Made of speltre, the bookends measure 7" wide (including her outstretched arm) 3" deep and 6 1/4" tall. Someone in the past 90 years painted these gold, and the paint is flaking. They are still lovely as is, but you may want to strip them, perhaps to find a signature! If they are signed, it is hidden beneath the paint. Circa 1920-1930.
