RONSON Sitting Nude Bookends

Art Deco Nude Bookends by Ronson

You may believe that you have seen these sitting nudes before, but you probably have not.  These streamlined nudes were produced by Ronson, very likely in the thirties: AMW, (Art Metal Works) is marked on the rear.  The bookends look familiar because unmarked reproductions are seen very frequently on eBay and in antique shops and shows. The deco pattern on the rear of the base is never shown on the reproductions. These are 7.25 inches tall and made as cold-painted gray metal.  Ronson collectors should like to have these, but they are quite rare. This is the only pair we have ever seen.
