Bookends by Art Deco sculptor Fayral circa 1930.
These are usually described as being Gerdago, who never sculpted these at all.
These were sculpted by Fayral probably as bookends, at least that is what I have found out after searching books on bronzes, and seeing some photos. They were continued as bookends by the JB Hirsch Foundry who made most of the bookends that found their way in North America.
I am still on the lookout and wanting to buy more when the funds do not escape me.
