Vintage CAST IRON END OF THE TRAIL BOOKENDS Native American Indian Western West Americana

A pair of vintage native American cast iron bookends, titled 'End of the Trail.'

We are pleased to offer this cast iron pair of bookends. Done in a Western motif, these 'End of the Trail' bookends sport the relief image of a native American rider on his horse surrounded by sage and other Southwestern desert foliage.

Sculpted by American-born artist James Earle Fraser, The End of the Trail has endured to become one of the most recognizable images in the United States. Many people are familiar with this representation of an American Indian on horseback, but few actually know the history of the piece.

Originally, it was more than just an image on a postcard, belt buckle, book end, or beaded bracelet. It was a major sculptural work. And for its creator, it was more than just a sculpture. It was a meaningful reminder of a childhood spent on the American frontier.

Of identical dimensions, each book end is 3 7/8 inches tall, 4 inches wide, and has a base 1 3/4 inches wide. Together, the bookends weigh 2 pounds, 6 ounces.

Both bookends are in good condition. Neither has any major dents or scratches that we can find. They have the kind of wear one would expect with items of this age, but nothing that interferes with the enjoyment of these pieces.

These bookends would be perfect for any office, den, or living room done in a Southwestern motif.
