This extremely rare set of original Kronheim and Oldenbusch bookends are completely untouched originals. This set is seen manufactured by PMC. These are the originals that were first made by Kronheim and Oldenbusch. Each bookend stands 5" tall, 5 3/4" long, 3 3/8" wide and weighs 2 lbs. 4 oz. They are in very good condition. The polychrome paint still retains it's sheen. There is virtually no finish loss. Authenticity is assured as they are both marked 'K and O MADE IN USA' on the rear. There is also an original sticker taped to the bottom felt. Kronheim and Oldenbusch created some of the most innovative and humorous bookends of all the early manufacturers. In the 1940's Philadelphia Manufacturing Company from Philadelphia, PA purchased a large number of the Kronheim and Oldenbusch molds. That is typically what you will find when you see this set. The Philadelphia Manufacturing Company now referred to as PMC still produces bookends, having moved to Florida in the 1970's. You will see this set made by them in a brass monochrome. For collectors, the original Kronheim and Oldenbusch set is the one they disire most.
