These magnificent collector bookends need no introduction. From a recent New York, NY estate sale we present this wonderful large pair of stunning vintage Art Deco Nude gold gilded bronze bookends by the renowned RONSON Company. Original felt to bottoms. 1900-1930
This is a great rare collectors set of these renowned bookends known throughout the vintage collectible venues as the "Ronson Nudes." The nudes are depicted sitting while reading a book that is open and lying across their laps.
If you are familiar with the Ronson Company, then you know that they were formerly based in Somerset, New Jersey. The company started as an adult store catering for the ill at ease, then became The Art Metal Works in 1886. Louis V. Aronson, the founder, was a gifted man who at 16 years old received a U.S. patent for a commercially valuable metal plating process he developed. Soon the company was producing a variety of high quality lamps, book ends, statues and other decorative items, prized today for their detail in the collector marketplace.
This great rare heirloom collector set of large Ronson Nudes has a great aged patina that has darkened over the years. The original felt is still present to the bottoms. They will display magnificently and garner attention regardless of where you choose to locate them.
This great set would look wonderful on desk, shelf, table, mantle, display cabinet or simply stand- alone sculptures that will showcase grandly. They would be a perfect addition to any sculpture, Art Deco, Nudes or Ronson themed décor or collection.
