Offering this very striking pair of antique bookends or mythical garnitures.
They have been described mythical as whales do not have scales. They are cast bronze but there are no marks on them. I have taken them apart to see if I could find a mark but there is not one. They are very heavy weighing 21 lbs. 5 oz. and measure 9 1/2" tall X 8" from tail to end of wood base.
These are rare as I have spent many hours researching them. They look great when used as bookends holding up leather books or displayed on a fireplace mantel.
