      i have similar ones which are clear glass, but i LOVE the green!!
    2. LaurenRedmond LaurenRedmond, 7 months ago
      Haha- I have blue pottery horse head bookends that I love very much( something about a horse head that’s so noble and stately) this one is a gorgeous deep green- reminds me of a kelpie(again!) or rather those two HUGE ones up in Scotland!
      I have to ask though, do you have a pair of them or just this one?

      A very beautiful and noble, classic pose very much of the 1940's style which I remember from my magazines. I used to own a similar stance one just over 20 years ago !~

      With thanks to everyone for the love

      Thanks so much ho2 for the super praise and I agree, animals in colored glass are tops because they just show up better in pictures. Glad you liked this horse in the green, it also came in white milk glass but I always prefer transparent color

      Lauren thank you my friend for your awesome comment, I can see the water kelpie image here, and horse head bookends do have a noble & stately look. This green horse is a singleton, it is rather a large heavy piece so if I had two it would be a challenge to get them both in an enlarged picture, but I may see if I can find another to actually use as bookends

      Thank you Phil for your marvelous comment & praise, I absolutely concur the 1940s designs were very stylish & elegant. Although this is a different maker I think perhaps a deco influence such as Royal Hickman's work for Heisey, he did some really gorgeous horses

      Penny thank you for the lovely compliment & finding this horse gorgeous, it has such pretty touches such as the knobby mane, that style was found on some full body horse bookends and is always impressive

      Wasn't this first made by Smith or something like that...? its been a long time sense I readed up on these...

      Love everything about this!
    9. Newfld Newfld, 7 months ago
      Thanks all for the love

      Thanks Jenny for your great comment, you are right many famous makers incl LE Smith have made either horse head or full horse bookends, I have a pair of Smith's in red amberina posted here (check CW search box above)

      Thank you MrsT for your fab comment, glad you liked this and agree about the detail, such a fancy mane & great face

      vintagelamp I'm delighted that you loved this Gillinder horse & thank you for the lovely words, he's a very proud one and so heavy I cannot keep him on a glass shelf, his home is in our credenza

      Thank you jb for your awesome comment & the love, glad you enjoyed this and agree it's a super shade of green - he's a most heavy fella, have to keep him on a lower wood shelf
