Rare and Beautiful Judd Company Camel Cast Iron Book Rack ca.1920
Expanding to fit a varying number of books, each end of the book rack features a gorgeous cast-bronze camel.
The camels wear wonderfully detailed tasseled and fringed saddles and bridles and sit atop a decorative base featuring patently Egyptian symbols, like the papyrus columns and scarabs.
Each end exhibits a beautiful polychrome finish in subdued shades of green and blue, making the vivid detail really stand out!
The Judd Company would ascribe a four digit number beginning with "9" to all of their bookends; as you can see, the reverse of each panel features a clearly embossed "9830".
An exemplar of craftsmanship and Egyptian Revival style, this bookrack remains in very good vintage condition, exhibiting only some very minor darkening and paint loss.
This Judd has a wonderful patina, rich textures and a regal and intriguing appeal.
