Presented is a pair of vintage plaster cast American Eagle bookends. Designed in a Federal style, with black base and five gold stars by Borghese of Italy. This beautiful bookend pair is the same style as seen in JFK’s Senate and Oval Offices. This simple elegance in design combines the stunning shine of the gold-painted eagles with the classic, clean-cut decorations of the base.
The designer, Borghese, made ornately detailed and high quality bookends including these in the 20th century. Made to appear as if it were hand-carved wood, the plaster work is given an attractive patina to blend in with all of the best craftsmanship in a collection or to simply stand alone as a handsome work.
Overall good condition considering age. The gold paint on the eagles is still vibrant and in good condition. Original Borghese red sticker on bottom, partially faded.
Dimensions: 8 1/2” H x 5 7/8” W x 5 1/2” D (each).
