You are Viewing a pair of 1920’s Loie Fuller Polychrome Metal Bookends Art Deco Lady Flapper #500. The figures depict a risque dancing girl with a flapper hairdo, wearing a sheer and flowing dress (that is as close to nude as you can get with every line of her body showing through). Loie was a famous beauty who toured the saloons and gold mining hot spots of the Old Wild West more than a hundred years ago. This was to celebrate her and were made right around 1920 by a company known only as X-1. They made elaborate and artistic bookends in the 1920’s that you can always tell by the backs, which are as fancy as the front, in this case showing an Arched Gateway with Flowers and the base has a Laurel Wreath design. Measuring 7 1/8″ inch high X 5″ wide X 4 inches deep. I would say in great vintage condition with original paint as shown. The faces are in excellent condition and the sheer dresses have a few paint chips as seen in the photos. These are the hardest ones to find in this color. They would make a great addition to any collection. Please see my other listings for more antique and collectible items and other unique and hard to find bookends.
