Anzengruber Keramik Wien Austria ART DECO Bookends

These are a pair of vintage, hand made pottery Art Deco style figures/bookends made by the Anzengruber factory of Austria .

They are an elderly couple, each sitting on 3 books. They are both wearing glasses and have holes for their eyes. The woman is knitting a sock. The man has a feather quill placed behind his ear. They are an attractive and colorful set.

The woman measures just over 8'' tall from bottom of base to the top of her hair bun. The man measures around 7 ½'' from the bottom of the base to the top of his head.

Impressed under the base of the man is the wording ANZENGRUBER HAND MADE IN AUSTRIA and the letter A. Impressed under the base of the woman is the wording ANZENGRUBER MADE IN VIENNA and the letter E. She also is bearing both a company sticker and an Austrian sticker in the back.

T is only minor damage. The man has three small areas of chipped paint-one on the bottom left book, one on the side of the middle book and one on the back of his head. T is light crazing only on the top of his head w he is bald and under the base. The woman has a small chip in the bottom right corner of the book and 2 tiny paint chips on the books. She has no crazing. All damage is visible in the photos. Overall, these are in very good condition considering their age.

The white areas/spots are lighting glare due to light reflection.

I will happily combine shipping on multiple purchases to save you money .

I usually ship by USPS, but let me know if a different shipping option is preferred. Insurance is optional, but strongly recommended.

International bidders:

Buyers are responsible for any and all Customs Fees and/or Duty Fees, or Taxes assessed by their Country . It is recommended that bidders research these fees prior to bidding. Information can be found on shippers web sites ( and ). Note, UPS also charges brokerage fees that the buyer must pay when they receive their package. These brokerage fees can be high. Because of this, I prefer to mail international shipments through the USPS. However, if you would like this shipped by UPS, please check with UPS about all additional fees prior to bidding.

I accept Paypal, money orders and cashier checks only. If paying by credit card through Paypal, I can only ship to a confirmed address.
