This is a beautiful old pair of cast metal, bronze clad with a copper hue, painted ship bookends from the Tarrant Co of New York. They are both marked Tarrant on the back as shown and are in very good condition with no damage and retain the majority of their original paint in the area where the ship motif is. They have incredible detail and color and really stand out. They measure almost 5.5 inches high, 6 inches wide and 2.5 inches deep on the base. They are nice, heavy pieces, very well executed, and would be a wonderful addition to your collection, as this pair is rather hard to find.
