Wonderful large pair of modernist cocobolo wood bookends designed by Don S. Shoemaker for Señal Mexico in the 1950s-60s. Features a split wood log cylinder style bookend shape, top has a diagonal slant to it. Would look great paired with books, or just as a display item in a modernist setting. These are fairly tall at 9" tall to the tip, 6 1/2" diameter log - the sizes of these bookends vary quite a bit. Fully marked on bottom with large sticker that we don't see as much.
In good vintage condition with no chips or breaks. There is 1 small dent or ding on the front edge - see last photo for closeup. There are natural splits and cracks in the wood, a bit of flaking or looseness near the central portion of the log. Some light wear and scratches.
About 9" at tallest, 6 1/2" diameter wide across the 2 bookend pieces.
