Very rare original set of antique bookends featuring a pair of horse standing companionably.  They appear to be a mare and her foal.  This set was made by the renowned Jennings Brothers Company of Bridgeport, CT.  Circa 1930.  Each bookend stands 5 1/2" tall, 5 1/2" long, 3 1/4" wide and weighs 2 lbs. (4 lbs. for the pair).  They are in very good original condition with no breaks, touch-ups or repairs.  Authenticity is assured as the shopmark J.B. is in relief on the side of the base.

Jennings Brothers was one of the foremost manufacturers of high quality bookends and other art metal products 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.
