Category: Woodcarvings - Pre War
Description: Bookends, in the shape of birds.
Period: 1930-1940
Comment: Birds bookends were a popular export product on Bali in the 1950s. Thousands were mass produced and that affected the quality considerably. These bookends however were made before the mass production began. This is noticeble at two differences when compared to the more general bookends. First the beak of the bird goes into the egg instead of around it. Secondly the back support is bent slighly backward, just like a row of books would do. Normally the back support is placed under a 90 degrees angle. Also the beautiful brown patin is proof that these bookends were made in the thirties.
