Description

Superb pair of spelter Art Deco bookends, each fashioned as a gull flying over a breaking wave on a red marble base. The green patinated gulls are beautifully modelled with individual carved feathers and finely modelled head and beak while the curved waves feature a breaking surf effect at their terminals.

Condition Report

Excellent – structurally sound with good even patination. Small underside corner chip on one marble base (non display side), a few very minor signs of wear on the gulls mentioned for completeness..
