Dating to the late 1920s, this unique set of bronze bookends features a Pilgrim motif. One bookend depicts the Mayflower at sea as viewed from shore, whereas the other shows a Pilgrim, probably William Bradford, stepping out of a boat onto Plymouth Rock as others in the landing party look on and the Mayflower is visible in the distance. The design is in high relief against an Art Deco-influenced tablet background. Each bookend bears the "B&H" hallmark on its back, designating that it was manufactured by Bradley & Hubbard.
The bookends are in great vintage condition with enough patina to show their history with pride as they prop up your antique books. And, the set makes for an ideal gift for anyone’s library or study.
