This was my Grandpa's then my Dad's and now my cousin and I share these bookends. I have looked the company up online but cant seem to find this one. Any help on year or value would be great!! We are excited to be sharing this item!!

    The bookend looks like one made by Bradley and Hubbard, the sticker of Lake Placid probably is where it may have been bought originally. B & H were the largest manufacturers of bookends anywhere I believe. Most are unmarked but a fair bit is known about the manufacturers. This is very much in their style, and the subject matter is somewhat generic with this book worm. !~Phil.

    yes, it says B.F.Guild Inc. My cousin has the other half and we vowed not to sell them but I told her I would inquire about them. Any ideas on cost??

    Probably like mustardtony says it was a trade label and B&H was the largest bookend maker ever, likely hundreds of different ones, there are books with this in and I have a copy of the book on bookends and prices. Phil.
