Frankart Art Deco Nymph Bookends
Artist: Arthur Von Frankenberg
Circa 1928, American

 

Wonderful rare pair of all original Frankart bookends, with the classic art deco nude lady, 
also known as a nymph, with her arms out stretched, standing on a sculpted skyscraper base.
This is cast in white metal and has the original Frankart green paint intact.

Each are signed on the topsides of the base, near the back: FRANKART on one side of the nymph and on the other side, with the copyright C in a circle and the number 28 (for the year 1928).
This nymph design was also used in several of Frankart's lamps, however, 
this particular bookend design is rarely found today, likely due to the fragile nature of the figure.

Dimensions (each):  6" wide, 9 3/8" high, 3 3/8" deep.

Condition: In excellent original condition.
No repairs or touch ups. Age related wear and paint chips.

Item # DADA21: Price: $ 2,900.
