Rare Antique Pair of Hand Carved Ebony Wood & Bone (?) Bookends
Foo Dog / Lion / Gargoyle Carvings
This is a beautiful set of very collectible antique bookends.
The wood appears to be a very dense and heavy ebony wood. The ivory colored teeth, claws and eyes appear to be a natural bone, horn, ivory or tusk material. The tongue is crafted from a darker reddish wood.
The wood is joined with a quality "dove tailed" connection. They appear to be very old.
Each bookend measures approximately 6" tall and 7" wide.

Very good condition. One tail may be missing end. Some cracks in antique ebony. See close up pictures for best description.
