moreMid-century Italian ceramic bookends consisting of two leopards sitting on plinths from the 50s. Beautifully detailed, these bookends are filled with sand to give them added weight. The finish on the leopards is matte, the plinths have a subtle shine. The work put into painting each spot, is what attracted me to them. These two add a bit of Hollywood Regency glam to a stack of books, a desk-- just about any display area you can think of .
Measurements: 5.5" tall x 5.5" wide x 3" deep.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition. There is age appropriate crazing on the glaze of each plinth. One plinth has a tiny (1cm) chip in it's glaze only- no chip in the ceramic itself, (lower inside corner, picture 9). There are also three tiny black dots on the top of one plinth, (pic. 5). The animals are completely intact- no chips on the ears etc. Their matte finish is in excellent condition, no crazing, or fading. less
