Kathodion Bronze Works

Circa 1913

“Young Wisdom”

Price:  $565 / pair

“Young Wisdom Kathodion Bronze Works. Circa 1913. Bronze-clad.  Measures 7” high x 4-1/2” wide x 5” deep.  Weighs 6 lbs. the pair.  Old original felt on bottom of base.   Inscription: KBW ArtBronz.  Although I can’t find a sculptor’s signature, they might have been  created by (or influenced by) sculptor Brenda Putnam who holds a 1913 copyright “nude child, seated, with both hands on book.” Featured in old KBW catalog as #555 and appears in many old ads of the period. These are in outstanding, mint condition with beautiful dark bronze patina.  An incredible 98 year old pair of bookends that clearly makes a statement for literacy.
