  • Vintage “Clipper on the High Seas” Bookends

    Vintage “Clipper on the High Seas” Bookends

    A nice pair of period nautical bookends.

    We recognise the design by Paul Herzel but not the makers simple “A” mark next to the copyright mark. The manufacturing style suggests Hubley who commenced business as early as 1895. They continued until 1965 when they were bought out by Gabriel Industries. We would date these from just before of after WWII.

    Cast in a strong copper bronze with plates to back and base. Some age, generally very good condition.

    Weighing 1.1 kg the pair and standing 15cm high … with a nice three dimensional profile.

    Good Nautical Clipper Pair – Paul Herzel design

  • Builder Bookends – Armor Bronze – c1925

    Builder Bookends – Armor Bronze – c1925

    A nice heavy pair of bookends of handsome builders at work by Armor Bronze designed by Julio Kileny.

    Substantial 3.2 kgs the pair and standing 20 cms tall … a very practical decorative set

    Expert Kuritzky states that Armor Bronze were listed as at 333 4th Avenue New York in 1920. He goes on to say that the New York facility was apparently discontinued in 1929 and they then re-emerged at Taunton Massachusetts in 1934 and finally closed just after WWII in 1948.

    Kuritsky gives this design a date of c1925. One of our bookends still carries the original Armor Bronze New York label which helps confirm a pre 1929 date.

    Some ageing as you would expect but generally in very good condition.

    Deco builders had more fun … a little cheeky!
