These Peter Pan Bookends with a lovely lacquer coloring are a version of the figure atop the sculpture in Kensington Gardens. Having just returned from London where we made sure to visit Sir George Frampton’s rendering of Peter Pan it seems appropriate to showcase these special bookends.
The sculpture of Peter Pan, which was commissioned by J.M. Barrie in 1902, is located next to next to Long Water in Kensington Gardens, the spot which Barrie used for his tale of Peter Pan. The line of pilings and birds on Long Water contribute to it’s serenity and beauty.
Several castings of the Peter Pan Sculpture were made and are located around the world for the enjoyment of those who are young at heart and love fairies. It may be seen in the following locations:
Sefton Park, Liverpool, England
Egmont Park, Brussels, Belgium
Bowring Park, St. John’s, Newfoundland
Glenn Gould Park, Toronto, Canada
