Art and Crafts Metalwork Bookends with Carved Celadon Jade Medallions by Potter Studio Ca 1915
Horace Potter (1873 - 1948) was one of the founders and key figures in the Cleveland School of Arts & Crafts metalwork. Potter, who was influenced by England's Charles Robert Ashbee, went on to create the Potter Studio in early 20th Century. His work is exhibited in numerous Museums - the Brooklyn Museum, Newark Museum, and the Cleveland Museum of Art to name a few.
This pair of bookend is a very bright example of an object in the pure Arts and Crafts movement tradition - the perfect rendering, the conciseness of design, the severity and the refined simplicity of the lines of the brass parts; as well as the use of contrasting romantic elements - in this case, beautifully hand-carved celadon white jade medallions, depicting Paradise birds surrounded by flowers.
Each is - Height: 5 1/4 Inches; Width: 4 Inches; Depth: 7 Inches
They are in a very good condition with no any kind of breaks or repairs, however due to their age, they show appropriate signs of age and use as a wear of patina, scratches, scuffs, discoloration that add a beautiful antique heritage .
PLEASE, enlarge and study all photos as an additional part of description.
