A really neat Deco bookend. I cannot find a signature, but the identical picture of one is in a book on Antique Bookends, and describes this one as: Double Scroll 5 in. wood, copper, steel and plastic. 1936 Revere Copper and Brass Co. Since there is green felt on the bottom, possibly the signature is under the felt. This bookend has been used, there is some white paint missing from the center piece (easily repainted); and a few scuff marks on the copper and steel which probably can be buffed out. They all seem minor for the type of item as a bookend. There still is good spring in the scroll ends of the bookend. The overall measurements are 5 in. high, and the bottom base measures 6 in. dia.

This is a lovely vintage sets, each has a large sailing ship with waves lapping around the base of each ship. They are 6 tall 6 1/4 long by about 2 at the widest point. They are both in good condition, have a sort of dull gold finish on the front, wear to the paint in several places, could be repainted if desired, only the paint is worn, the metal is not damaged. The backs have darkened with age, you can see the shinny copper color in spots underneath this, I know nothing about cleaning these so that will be up to you. One still has the original green felt base, one does not, so you would probably want to replace these, both are marked on the back bottom corner with the Bronze Art mark. they would be a lovely addition to your collection or decor!

Vintage decorative chalkware bookends. These feature floral pictures; not sure if they are hand painted or paper mache. These bookends appear fairly old; there is some striation on the pictures, and there is a very old paper label on bottom, (this label is similar to a label found on some of my antique celluloid boxes I have sold previously, and I believe is Italian). These stand 6 tall x 5 wide. One has a chip off a front bottom corner edge, (dab it with antique gold paint), and other one has a tiny fleabite near top rim, [pic 6 & 7]. Chalkware items are prone to flaking and chipping, so these are what I would consider 'good vintage' condition despite the flaws.
Vintage Austrian brass scale. It looks quite old, and I believe this was used to weigh letters/postcards, etc. It is in good working and display condition, and is marked on back: O.E.S.T.P. 1766 AUSTRIA.

It is very lightweight. A great accessory item to display on your antique writing desk!
