Fabulous bronze bear bookends from a quaint shop in Nantucket.

These bears are made from a very heavy bronze or brass. They have been hand finished in a verdigris finish which resembles a polished stone, like soapstone. The are very smooth in your hands, and again, very heavy. One bear is more gray green and the other is more of a tan green. Each has a very earthy feel and the artist has cleverly used the finish to accent the ripples of the muscles.

Each bear is carved slightly differently so that each has its own character and facial expression. I love that each holds the books up with one huge paw. Each bear is just shy of 7" tall and each is about 3.75" wide. Each bear has a black velvet felt on the bottom to protect your bookshelf. Very good vintage condition. Great size and they can hold your heaviest books. (The book in the photos above is not included - - it is for display only.)
