Age/Period: Vintage - 1940s-1970s

Manufacturer/Identification/Markings/Country of Origin: Unknown!

*One of the bookends still retains its original felt lining affixed to its underside, and perhaps a maker’s signature or mark appears beneath. The underside of the bookend which does not retain its original felt underlining, however, does not reveal any attribution as to the craftsman, maker or manufacturer.

Material(s)/Format:

*Wood heads - orange-ish in coloration (we’re not knowledgeable enough about wood to state the exact type of wood used)

*Wood bases/stands (we’re not knowledgeable enough about wood to state the exact type of wood used)

*? glass or ? hard plastic eyes (we’re unsure which)

Size/Measurements: 7"L x 3 3/4"W x 6"H

Quantity: One (1) pair of bookends

Condition Summary: Excellent vintage collectible condition, retaining a marvelous patina!

Condition Details/Specifics: The eyes reddish-orange (?glass/plastic?) eyes of both ducks are very clear, with no cloudiness whatsoever. Because these are vintage items that were actually used for their originally intended purpose (to support books), there is a modicum of normal and not unusual age appropriate wear and handling, though that wear is surprisingly and pleasingly quite nominal. Noted condition factors are: One of the duck heads exhibits a bit of looseness where it is attached at the base so it does move around if touched. That same duck head also exhibits a couple of ?rub/wear? spots/marks (we’re not quite sure what the appropriate term is to describe these - they’re not scratches, stains or grazes but are lighter in color than the rest of the wood). The other duck head evinces a light scratch on its head above its right eye. The bases to which they are attached exhibit a modest bit of surface rubs/handling and very minor lower edge/corner scuffing, and one of the bases no longer retains its felt liner, while the one that still remains is beginning to lift off of/away from its underside just a wee bit, though it is still completely intact and adherent to the underside.
