World Atlas #160 with Cockatoo Pompeian Bronze- Circa 1922.  Bronze-clad with polychrome finish.  Measures 9-1/4” high x 5-1/2” wide x 3-1/4” deep.  Weighs 8 lbs. the pair.  The front cover and spine of the book  say Atlas of the World with a cockatoo perched on top of the book, contemplating his next trip.  Number 160 appears on the book’s spine.  Pompeian Bronze is inscribed on the back.  The felt is long gone, revealing the shallow depression with cut-off dipping wire, a tell-tale sign of all bronze-clad, electroformed bookends.  They are described as weighted bronze in two reference books,  Bookend Revue and Collectors Guide to Bookends.  They are hard to find in good condition and highly sought after by collectors. There appears to be some age appropriate wear to the finish with a few tiny edge dings, but no cracks or breaks.  Otherwise wonderful condition.
