An excellent pair of Arts and Crafts Mission style hand wrought copper bookends by Craftsman Studios of Laguna Beach California. The appearance is classic Arts and Crafts, stylized arched shield shape with slightly puffed out centers and graceful lower inward wave and crocodile skin hand hammering. Each has an organic repousse motif at top center, evoking a tree of life with trident roots, enhanced with a silver finish.
The bookends are just over 5 inches high by 4-1/2" wide at the base and have brown wool felt applied to the bottoms. The patina is original - they've never been cleaned or polished and are in very good condition with no noted scratches or damage. There are some small spots of verdigris on the backs. Both are marked with the hammer and anvil logo: Craftsman Studios, Hand Made At Laguna Beach Calif.
