An archetypal pair of Art Deco book ends made of what we believe is marble with contrasting grounds of black, white, russet constructed as faces of stone. Although the condition is very good, it is not pristine, meaning that small nips, nicks, and 1 very small chip are scattered randomly about the ends. We consider these defects minor, and would deter only the perfectionist collector.
There is some background reflection in the pictures.
