Sellers of Antique Bookends, Vintage Glass, & Collectibles

JB Hirsch bookends -- romantic, elaborate, and elegantly designed --  are the most sought after of all bookend manufacturers. They are usually figural pieces cast in pure spelter (“French bronze”) and usually reflect the chryselephantine movement, displaying ivorine (celluloid) faces, hands and other parts. In some cases, the parts are painted to resemble ivorine.
