Item: Machine Age Alcoa Bookends

Manufactured by: Alcoa

Country of origin: United States

Year made: 1930s

Materials: Aluminum and Vitrine glass

Dimensions: 5” x 5” x 3 ½”

Description:  Here is a great pair of art deco machine age period bookends produced by ALCOA as give-away promotional items.  Our research indicates that these and other ALCOA give-away promotional items were often just for ALCOA employees and given away during company picnics and other events.  These are early and we checked the ALCOA website, which provides a complete history of their company logos.  These date to the 1930s or early 1940s at the latest.  Also the black vitrine glass was a product not used commercially after this period. 

Condition: Very good with a couple of very small flea bites on one bookend.
