Vintage Abraham Lincoln Bust Bookends by Philadelphia Manufacturing Co.

Sale price$275.00

Presented is a pair of vintage Lincoln bookends made by the Philadelphia Manufacturing Co. The bookends depict a detailed bust of President Abraham Lincoln, set on square pedestals.

The Lincoln bust is modeled after the 1887 full-length standing bronze by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for Chicago’s Lincoln Park. Saint-Gaudens based Lincoln’s likeness on plaster life casts of the president’s head. Saint-Gaudens was awarded the commission in 1883, largely due to the success and popularity of his earlier Civil War-related projects such as the Farragut Monument in Madison Square Park and the Sherman Monument in Grand Army Plaza, both in New York.

CONDITION:

The condition is good, considering age and use. Moderate spotting and wear to the bronze finish. Original "PM" manufacturers sticker, on red felted bottom.

Dimensions: 6 1/4" H x 3" W x 2 1/8" D.

Accompanied by the company's letter of authenticity.
