Great visual pair of Arts and Crafts storks bookends measuring 9 1/4" tall by 3 1/2" wide. The finish is like a faded gilt bronze and this is over a base metal. Incredibly illustrative, there is a pair on each base. One of the smaller birds is very slightly off canter with his raised foot being pushed slightly back from it's resting place. The birds are attached and the larger bird doesn't appear to be leaning so I feel this might have happened in production. I love the shape of the green marble bases which are a quarter circle each. An impressive and large pair dating to the early 1900's.
