Here's a pair of bookends that are a bit harder to find, made by Virginia Metalcrafters and featuring the Great Seal of the United States of America on them. They are heavy solid bookends, weighing 4 & 1/2 pounds each! They have that nice highly polished finish that this maker did so well, and the seal and wording on the fronts is done in raised relief. They are in very good condition with no damage and marked on the backs as shown.
There are some felt and cork pieces on the undersides to protect what they sit on, with one bookend having more than the other. The new owner may choose to add some some felt to that one. There are a few small white spots on the backs, as if some paint or glue was there - not at all visible from the front. They are just under 4 & 1/4 inches tall, are 4 inches deep and 4 & 1/4 inches wide.
This is a lovely pair, just in time for the 4th, and perfect for any patriotic or Americana display, as well as their original function of holding up books, while looking great on a shelf!
