These beautifully styled polychrome spelter (French bronze) bookends with black marble bases and ivorine (celluloid) heads where produced around 1925 and are attributed to the firm of J.B. Hirsch. They were made to resemble chryselephantine sculpture – a technique of decoration that layers gold over bronze combined with ivory.
Each measure approximately 6.56 inches long x 2.8 inches wide x 5.28 inches tall. Tips of handles on one cart are missing (see photos) and price reflects condition. Still, a very desirable, handsome rare Hirsch bookend set. Weighs almost seven pounds before packing.
