Rare Antique Bookends The War Horse by Connecticut Foundry, Cast Iron, 1930    Rare Antique Bookends The War Horse by Connecticut Foundry, Cast Iron, 1930
A rarely seen set of bookends featuring "The War Horse" (embossed on the back sides). The set is not listed in Kuritzky and De Costa's Collector's Encyclopedia of Bookends (2006) or in two other bookend references I have. MATERIAL: Cast iron with a silver-colored wash; a magnet sticks. CONDITION: The bookends are in nice condition.

The silver-colored wash is a slightly different color on each bookend, likely the result of exposure to the sun, but possibly the result of the manufacturing process. The patination on each bookend is even rather than spotty. I think the first photograph better represents the difference in color.

(Use the magnifier for a close-up look,) Each bookend has an indentation toward the bottom of the backside, though in different places. My guess is that this has something to do with the production process. Here is no damage, breakage, or repairs. The felts on the bottoms are replacements. DIMENSIONS AND WEIGHT: 5.25" tall, 5.75" wide at the base, and 2 deep at the base. The bookends together weigh 4 pounds, 3.8 ounces. The photographs are part of the description. Please examine them with the magnifier. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Decorative Collectibles\Bookends". The seller is "sociology9" and is located in this country: US.

This item can be shipped to United States.
