Set of vintage bookends, featuring seated Abraham Lincoln. These bookends were modeled from the bronze statue created by Gutzon Borglum that stands outside the Essex County Courthouse in Newark, New Jersey. Borglum was the sculptor who produced Mount Rushmore. These bookends emulate Borglum's sculpture of Lincoln, which leaves room for an individual to sit next to Lincoln on a bench. Lincoln sits with his arm outstretched as if to welcome a visitor.
Overall good condition, minimal wear. Produced by Philadelphia Mfg. in 1950. Dimensions: 5.5" H x 4.9" W x 3.25" D.
