This high quality set of bookends features a young Mother dressed in pioneer or pilgrim attire sitting in a chair reading to a young boy and girl standing by her side.  This set was made by Jennings Brothers Company of Bridgeport CT.  Circa 1930.  Each bookend stands 5 7/8" tall, 4" wide, 3 1/2" deep and weighs 2 lbs. 6 oz. (4 lbs. 12 oz. for the pair). Authenticity is assured as they are both marked JB1555 in relief on the rear and they have both the original bottom paper labels, felts and stability plates. They are in very good original condition. There are no breaks, repairs, or, touch-ups.

Jennings Brothers was one of the foremost manufacturers of high quality bookends and other art metal designs from the late 1800's through the 1940's. We have never seen an inferior product from them. The detailing and finishes are consistently superb. A truly fine company that has proven the test of time.  Their pieces are extremely collectible.  They were located in Bridgeport, CT.  One of the primary reasons for their value is they could not make their products using machinery because of the delicacy of the techniques used so they were done by artists and craftsmen. The resulting efforts are immediately realized when you find Jennings Brothers items today as the finishing is superior to most of the metal arts companies.  Few compare to this quality.
