'SWEETHEARTS' antique couple bookends KRONHEIMER & OLDENBUSCH
- Item #: 2568
- Manufacturer: Kronheim & Oldenbusch K&O
This wonderful set of bookends is delightfully detailed. It appears both the man and woman had been reading, he has a book on his lap, hers has dropped to the floor, when they both turned to look at one another. Both are formally dressed except the woman's breasts appear unclothed. They sit beautifully on the shelf as their faces peer out. Kronheim and Oldenbusch produced some of the most humorous bookends of their time. Each bookend stands 5 3/8" tall, 4 1/4" long, 3 5/8" deep and weighs 3 lbs. (6lbs. for the pair). They are in very good condition. Authenticity is assured as both have the K&O Co. printed in relief on the back.
