A pair of heavy vintage striated carved onyx bookends in the form of unicorn heads.
Structurally sound, although there is a query over one or both of these carved heads might have been reglued to the base. This often happens with this type of item due to the weight of the base. Please see photographs.
Each bookend measures approximately 5.5in tall to the top of the unicorn’s head, with the base measuring approximately 3.25in and just over 2.25in at its longest and widest. Exact age unknown, but probably dates from the middle of last century, or possibly a little later. Together, the bookends weigh over 1.3kg.
