EARLY 20TH CENTURY AME RI CAN VINTAGE PAIR 7 TALL, LARGE GREAT DANE BUST COPPER PLATED POT METAL BOOKENDS, with DEEP, NATURALLY AGED PATINA & EPISODES OF BRIGHT COPPER ELECTROPLATE. [Bookends now missing felt bottom covers]. Early 20th century Ame ri can vintage copper plated pot metal figurative sculpture of dogs & other fauna. 7" Height x 3 14" Width x 5 12 Depth. The surface of the early 20th century vintage Great Dane dog busts appears to be copper plated pot metal, with brighter copper highlights appearing in an otherwise darker, charcoal gray, sepia brown base color combination. The physicality and muscularity of the Great Danes, with their oversized, massive heads, is on full display, with their ears cropped, standing straight upward and the sheer power of even just their heads, visually evident.

The dog busts have episodes of a whitish oxidation that provides color surface fluctuation, as does the brighter copper highlights. The hollow form's bottoms no longer have their protective covers, which were most likely felt pads placed over mill board, affixed to the edges of their bases. The metal bookends don't suffer from fractures, dings, dents or noticeable abrasions.

The copper plated pot metal alloy surfaces resemble bronze.
