These humorous wood carved bookends in the form of stylized birds will leave you smiling.
The birds are geometrically carved in the usual Art Deco style (perhaps after Marcel Bouraine)with tails up and beaks down. The beaks are a light color contrasting with the dark wood gleaming with the patination of nearly 100 years. They are pleasantly heavy and, unusually, perched over small pull drawers.
CONDITION: Very good. Slight loss to veneer on base, but pieces are in the drawer. Small chip to top point of one figure.
DIMENSIONS: 7" x 5.5" x 4.5"
