Pair of Native American Figural Bookends

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

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 masterfully detailed. 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.
