Very rare, finely detailed, high quality set of bookends using the bronze-clad method of production. Each bookend stands 6" tall, 4 3/4" wide 4 1/8" deep and weighs 3lbs. 8 oz. (7 lbs for the pair).  They are in very good condition.  Authenticity is assured as both are signed G. Allen and have the Armor Bronze shopmark incised in the rear.  The bronze-clad method in the 1920's was highly innovative. It was an early electroform process which created some of the most outstanding bookends of that era. The process entailed placing a rod (electrode) inside a plaster mold and then using electricity to form a bronze shell around the piece. Some of these products could take up to three days to complete. The cost of time and labor was excessive. None of the foundries survived. However, today, these pieces are greatly treasured and considered show pieces in the homes of collectors.
