Breathtakingly beautiful pair of antique bookends featuring charming winged cherubs or angels reading in an alcove with classical ballustrade. These figural bookends are made of a weighted chalkware with metallic bronzed gold finish and verdigris in the recessed areas. The classical theme has a French feel to it and the detail to the cherubim or putti is exquisite. They have curly hair and are sweet as can be with wings peeking out from behind them. They are kneeling while reading a book. Perhaps these are meant to portray Cupid reading a romantic novel? The condition is beautiful with no chips or cracks. Measurement is 8" high 3 3/4" wide and 2 7/8" deep. Circa 1900-1910. Art Nouveau era. These would make a wonderful gift for a book lover!
