Rare Pair of Mid Century Cat Bookends with marble base


Rare Pair of Mid Century Modern Bookends of White Cats on Marble. Excellent Stylised designs, capturing the relaxed animal pose with tail curled and both front paws tucked under. The cats are of re-constituted white marble and very heavy with a finely polished satin finish, with very fine details to face and ears; the bases are very heavy agate, with finely striped grain in dark blues, grey, and with the occasional narrow streaks of white and black, all highly polished to a glass like surface; the original black felt is retained to the base to protect polished furniture. Both have no damage, no losses or repairs, just all perfect.
