…two Rookwood Bookends.
This pair of Wise Owl Bookends will guard your precious collection of books or grace your desk with their learned presence. Created in 1948 by the Cincinnati, Ohio Rookwood Pottery Company they are a wonderful example of the rich detail and respected craftsmanship used by Rookwood in the creation of their pottery treasures.
The pair, created from mold # 2655, stand 5.75″ high and are in very good condition. There are no cracks, chips, glaze flakes or previous repairs. There is some crazing that is to be expected from items this age. They are referenced on page 228 of A Price Guide to Rookwood edited by L-W Book Sales. The mold was originally created in 1935. The 1999 suggested value was $500.00 to $550.00. We are offering this pair at a special Holiday price of $375.00. (Good until December 31, 2009.)
