Pair of 1920s Bronze Clad Decorative Bookends by A Johnson
Unique bookends manufactured in the 1920's by the Armor Bronze company after a design by A Johnson. Cherub leafing through a book is the highly stylized theme of this unique bookends casting technique of bronze cladding.
Bronze cladding was a technique where an item was cast in plaster and then had a bronze overlay placed on it. In 1915, The National Metalizing Company was advertising their Armor Bronze products in their studio and showroom in New York City with their main office and factory in Garwood, New Jersey. By 1920, they had simply become known as The Armor Bronze Company.
A great addition to your living room decor, library or office space.
