A heavy pair of bookends with an exotic camel theme that will hold books up nicely. The molded iron bookends have a slight copper patina that have a design of camels at rest fitted with saddles. The casting is deep and accurate. They have flat bases with dark brown felt.
There is the molded mark EGYPTIAN CAMEL COPYRIGHT 1928 THE CONNECTICUT FOUNDRY 00. on the back of both camels.
6” (15.2 cm) wide x 4 ½” (11.4 cm) tall x 2 ¼” (5.7 cm) deep. Weighs 3 lb 9.4 oz (1625 g)
They are in very good shape with no breaks, dents, cracks, or chips. There is slight patina loss and spotting on the flat base in front of the camels. They look aged and entire. The felts must have been replaced, as they are in good shape.
A great pair of bookends that combine art and function.
