For sale is a wonderful set of bookends made by Benedict Studios of East Syracuse, NY. The bookends measure roughly 6" wide by 5 5/8" tall and 2 1/4" deep. They are thin but sturdy and have decent weight for their size.

The bookend displays a square, slight rectangular shape. It has a recessed window in which this area is hand hammered. Surrounding the recessed window is a border that is also hand hammered. The base metal is copper and the background against this window is smooth. As an added delight the very edges of the bookends are also hand hammered. Truly and Arts and Crafts accessory for your den or office. The patina is a craftsman brown with the recessed hammered marks showing black. The patina is pretty uniform with one bookend showing more patina wear than the other.

These bookends are considered to be in very good condition as there are no major dings or bends in the metal. The underside bottom have come down to the copper color from sliding under books and is considered normal wear. There is some wear to the patina on one of the bookends in the lower 1/4. These bookends are not signed but I attribute them to have been made my Benedict Studios based on the hand hammering and patina color. These bookends were made circa 1907-1920.
