This is a beautifully detailed set of vintage bookends featuring dogs that appear to be in the terrier family. Each bookend stands 6" tall, 4' wide, 4" deep and weighs almost 2 pounds. They are in very good original vintage condition. The finish is a beautiful verdigris bronze frequently referred to as pottery finish. Authenticity is assured as both are signed McClelland Barclay 1932. McClelland Barclay (1891-1942) was an American artist of many talents. He was an illustrator with works published in the major magazines and periodicals of the day, The Saturday Evening Post, Ladies' Home Journal, Colliers, Redbook, etc. He did advertisements and illustrations for major companies in the 1920's and 1930's. In the 1930's he formed a small production company that produced designs he created in jewelry and small utilitarian figures such as bookends, desk sets and lamps. He was killed in 1942 in the Soloman Islands while serving in the U. S. Navy as a Lt. Commander. A tremendous loss.
