Pair of Native American Figural Bookends

1,500.00

In this pair of figural bookends, an Indian, holding a bow and bowstring, shades his eyes while peering into the distance, one knee resting on a mound and his shield hanging behind him, from his teepee.
Though this pair is unmarked, they are well-cast and emphasizes the masterfully detailed elements. The pieces are similar to works from the Weidlich Brothers foundry. The Weidlich Brothers manufacturing company (1901-1950) was established in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where they produced high-quality silver and bronze items, including bookends that are generally well cast and bronze plated.
