Solid brass swooning swan bookend set
Large swan bookend set in beautiful vintage condition with uniform aged golden patina. They stand 8.25″ tall and weigh 3½ lbs each.
The bases are covered with a thin rubber-like material that prevents slipping and surface damage. Old importer label still attaced to base reads: Decorative Crafts, Inc. Hand-Crafted Imports 4893. Another sticker reads: Made in Korea.
The ‘Decorate Crafts’ importer was established in 1928, USA. They are still in business today, importing mainly furniture. The age of this swan pair is unknown. The decor style is Art Nouveau, nature based with flowing lines, which was popular at the turn of the 19th Century. Art Nouveau style remains popular and has been used in decor design ever since. We estimate the age of these swans to be 40 years or older.
