ANTIQUE HAND CARVED NUDE & LIONBOOKENDS SIGNED 19th C. ART DECO ALABASTER
Each have a number, etched by hand, on the bottom, along with “Made In Italy”. The nude depicted on the bookend is repose with the lion. I’m not quite sure what the wreath and snake symbolize. Made out of alabaster and dating to the late 19th C. To the Art Nouveau period, the bookends weigh about 6 lbs. And each measure approximately 5.25″ x 4.5″. In some cases, photos are enlarged to show detail. They show wear commensurate with age. Please see photos for reference. A great addition to any collection.
