Pair of antique hand carved Swiss Black Forest bears, carved to be a pair of bookends. They are not attached to anything, could be used as bookends, or hung on a wall or set on shelf, you name it. They do stand up just fine as you can see. They have wonderful anatomical detail in the carving and they also have glass eyes, brown with black pupils. Very sweet and lifelike pair. Measurements are noted on the photos.
Very good condition, I believe they would have originally been the end pieces to a sliding book rack, and have, at some point, been removed for other use. Temping to just use them on a shelf or two shelves. One could certainly also add a brass "L" to the back so they could again work as bookends. One ha a chip at the base of his hind foot - not the foot but at base of platform below his foot. Otherwise, no chips to note, no cracks. Charming guys! You are buying 2 pieces, as shown.
