Pair of panther bookends

The pair of bookends with panther motif originates from France and was made around 1930. The bookends are made of ceramic and designed in the typical Art Deco style of the 1920s and 1930s.

The bookends are designed in the shape of panther sculptures, which are stylized and elegant. Panthers were a popular motif in the Art Deco era and were often used in art and design. The sculptures are carefully crafted and show great attention to detail, particularly in terms of the texture and pattern of the fur.

In the Art Deco era, bookends were a popular decorative element in upscale households and were often viewed as status symbols. Today, Art Deco bookends are highly sought-after collector’s items and are often used as decorative elements in vintage interiors. A pair of such bookends can be a unique and elegant piece that adds a touch of nostalgia and elegance to any home.

Panthers were often viewed as symbols of strength, elegance, and exoticism and were seen as a manifestation of the wild nature. In art and design, panthers were often depicted in stylized form to convey a certain abstraction and modernity.

Panthers were also a popular motif in jewelry making and were often crafted into brooches and pendants. They were often embellished with precious gems such as diamonds and emeralds to accentuate their majestic beauty.
