Cheshire Cat Bookends Book Ends Rare Bronze Alice in Wonderland Art Sculpture
We are pleased to bring you this incredibly exciting pair of circa 1920s antique solid bronze bookends. They are inscribed "The Cheshire Cat", and I think you'll readily agree they are most obviously inspired by the timeless classic Alice's Adventures In Wonderland. This is a RARE and extremely SCARCE item. What a wonderful, whimsical design. The grinning Cheshire Cat is in the center, with a grinning moon and sparkling stars over his shoulder, the rooftops of London in the background, and two smaller cat compatriots beside him - both with the same humorous grin. And of course, it's a mouse running in the gutter beneath his feet. The legend "THE CHESHIRE CAT" is engraved on the lower front edge of both bookends. The back of each has a distinctive mark that reads. The condition of both pieces is excellent, with the bronze patina only age can impart. No visible damage, flaws or repairs. This is simply a fabulous rare find. 6 1/2" TALL X 6 1/2" WIDE X 2 5/8 DEEP.
