VERY Rare and Antique Bronze Metal Phoenix / Dragons Bookends. Wood Base. China.
I have done a lot of research on these and THEY ARE EXCEEDINGLY RARE. I acquired them from an estate auction in Los Angeles. The family had collected very rare and unique items from China for over 100 years . . . and most likely spent a great deal of time there during that time.
The photos say everything. I have had these in my personal collection for over 15 years and have always found them intriguing. Great patina and in good condition for age. Some flaking and deterioration on some edges of the block bases.
You will NEVER, EVER find these bookends again…. think about them and their future value.
A very unique piece for the VERY Serious Collector of VERY RARE items. What a bargain!!!!
