Wonderful bookends in the form of a violin and case displayed with sheet music as the background and a colorful cloth draped in the foreground. Bronze-clad, a manufacturing process by which a skin of bronze was deposited on a plaster form through electro-plating. A handful of companies used this method in the early 1900s to make decorative household objects that had the look, feel, and heft of solid bronze yet were affordable by the middle class. One of those companies was Marion Bronze, established in 1923 and operating in Metuchen, NJ into mid-century.
These probably date to that latter period. Marion's initials MB found on the backs. No breaks, dents or scratches.Paint is original, entirely intact. Both pieces sit flat and stable. These are big: 6 3/4 inches tall; 5 inches side to side; 3 5/8 inches front to back. Heavy at 3 1/2 pounds EACH PIECE. Perfect gift for the music major in your family.
