Vintage Bradley & Hubbard Stamped Art Deco 1920s Egyptian Revival Sphinx Bookends ~ The revival during the 1920s is sometimes considered to be part of the art deco decorative arts style. The demand for Egyptian designs boomed during the 1920s, after the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922 spread Egyptian imagery throughout the western world. Newsreel footage of archaeological digs and Hollywood depictions of the gilded Egyptian empire sealed the deal: Egyptian style was red hot. Texas Hill Country Treasures is proud to offer this example of a set of Bradley & Hubbard Egyptian bookends. Both are stamped with the circular B&H mark on the bottom back right corner. Bradley and Hubbard were commonly called the Masters of Metalwork. These bookends were manufactured in the 1920s. Their line of outstanding bronzed or polychrome cast iron bookends were made from molten iron poured into sand molds. The bookends are noted for their heavy weight, fine finish and excellent detail and are extremely popular with collectors. Signed. Priced as a pair. They measure approximately 4 3/4 " x 2 3/4 ".
