1,850.00

Designer: Walter Von Nessen (1889 – 1943)

Item: Horse Bookends

Description: A rare, iconic and highly collectable American modernist design by Von Nessen.  These are signed with the Chase logo and “Pat. Applied For” on the edge of the base, which places manufacture very early since the patent was obtained in December 1932. 

Manufactured by: Chase Copper and Brass Company

Country of origin: United States

Year made: 1932

Materials: Nickelplated brass and black nickel base

Dimensions: 6 ¼” x 4" x 2 ½” 

Condition: Very good to excellent.  Not polished or cleaned with original lacquer in nice shape.   Close inspection shows some minor scuffs and aging to the finish, but we did not touch these, because it is hard to find them in such terrific shape in this finish combination.
