Bookends—Shakespeare and Longfellw

Book arts


(BOOKENDS) (H.L. JUDD COMPANY). Bookends—Shakespeare and Longfellow. New York: H.L. Judd, circa 1925. Two cast bronze bookends with verde antique finish, each approximately 7 by 4 inches by 6-1/2 inches tall, with busts of Longfellow and Shakespeare. $350.

A handsome pair of literary bookends—one of Shakespeare, the other of Longfellow—in a matched pattern.

Based in Brooklyn, the H.L. Judd company could trace its roots back to 1833 in New Britain, Connecticut; its bookends are noted for their detailed and exact designs and high levels of execution.

A bit of chipping to the finish, mostly at the base. A lovely set.
