Here is a handsome pair of vintage Bookends by Austin Products. These heavy plaster figures depict Asian Scholars…I believe they are called the Zen Scholars. One is reading a book, the other is doing math with an abacus. They are nice, large sculptures each measuring approx. 9” high by 5 ½” across. The finish is a dark green resembling deep bronze patina. Both pieces are marked on the side:

AUSTIN Prod. Inc.


The figure reading the book is in Excellent condition with no damage. The fellow with the abacus appears to have a crack in his hand. I am not sure if this is after market damage or a flaw in the making, as it is colored the same as the rest of the statue.
