About

We are delighted to this stunning pair of circa 1900 Asprey London Japanese Samurai hand dyed leather book ends A very good looking well-made and decorative pair of bookends, each one depicting early Samurai, they are actually embossed leather so there would have been a metal cast sculptured which would have been heated and used to emboss the leather, it’s a very difficult process These were retailed through Asprey London circa 1900, Asprey is known for sourcing wonderful thing from all around the world to retail in their Bond Street store In terms of the condition both have a period patina, one has some small sections of the cover missing to the back and sides, the other is perfect Dimensions: Height 14.7 cm Width 8 cm Depth 8 cm Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point. This item is available for collection from our Wimbledon warehouses Condition: Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description around condition Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of cracking creasing and wear, we recommend regular waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade.
