Very little is known about LaFrance Bronze, except that it existed in the Frankford section of Philadelphia, PA, in the early 1920s, producing bronze-clad bookends.

The Lion below is one of only two known bookends made by LaFrance.  Their other bookend was similar to a Crusader on Horseback, later made by Marion Bronze.
