Leafy Floral Bookends, Syroco, Ca. 1930-40
We are offering a set of Syroco bookends that are made using syroco wood. Each bookend represents a floral bloom complete with leaf sprigs around it. We have debated as to what flowers are being represented. They might be poppies, roses, hibiscus, or possibly something else. You will need to judge for yourself. Each bookend is attached to a metal plate at the bottom that has been covered with felt on the underside. Each end piece measures 6.25 inches tall and is 5.125 inches wide. The metal plates on the bottom measure 3 5/8 inches by 3 7/8 inches providing ample area to rest books on. Their condition is fine with no significant areas of damage or abrasion. There are no chips or cracks. One of bookends still retains part of the original Syroco label which is totally unreadable. This is a nice handsome set of bookends that is ready to be used and would look great on your book shelf.
Syroco is the trade name for products sold by the Syracuse Ornamental Company. The company dates back to the late 1890's and eventually went out of business in 2004. During the 1930's they created a line of gift items made with Syroco Wood. This was a combination of wood fiber and polymer that could be molded into decorative items that resembled hand-carved wood.
