This is a great pair of antique human skull on book bronze clad bookends that were made by the Armor Bronze Company, circa 1900. These nicely detailed skull bookend was advertised in Armor's 1900 catalog at a price of $5.00 for a pair. Bookends are in excellent condition with one of them having a small split in the bronze under the back of the skull on the book, right next to the base of the skull, otherwise no breaks, damage, or dents to the bronze. The book bases have felt on the bottom and one retains a partial original label. Nice old dark caramel color patina to the bronze as pictured. For size reference, the book portion measures 5 inches long. These great medical themed bookends would make a cool addition to your collection or decor. *Books not included.
