This pair of bookends presents a profile view of a Native American wearing a feather head bonnet and jewelry.  It is an exquisite pair of bookends with the bust of the Indian without background scenes.  The profile is a very strong image.  The bookends have significant weight and will certainly operate very well supporting books. 

It is possible that they are cast in bronze or possibly plated cast iron with a bronze finish.  We have not been able to find a manufacturer of antique bookends of this style in order to determine the materials.

 

Condition: this Pair of Indian Head Profile Bronze Bookends is in very good condition

Provenance:  from the collection of a gentleman in Santa Fe

Alternate view of the bookends doing some work.
