  • Pattern: Old Couple
  • Made in USA
  • Vintage:  1974
  • Details:  This is a great pair of bookends in a "Grandma & Grandpa" or "Old Couple" design.  They are whimsical and unique, we dare say, one of a kind.   The woman is knitting and the man is reading, they both have yellow glasses on and wearing blue outfits, her with a shawl, his with a vest.  The soft tones are really nice, and the level of detail is marvelous.  We believe these were made in a little shop called the Nifty Nook in West Plains, MO, (later became Studio 160 Ceramics), we give credit to Carol, the Nifty Nook's owner, for the moulds created.  Clients would use her molds to create these, and many other items, and then paint and fire them right in the store's kiln.  So these are unique, one of a kind art and they are signed and dated (1974) by the artist. There is felt on the bottom of each to protect your furniture.  A word of caution, these are VERY heavy (to hold your books), the shipping will be high, but totally worth it for this unique pair!  Great as a gift, for a study, library, office or for your favorite geriatrician!.  Hey, Grandparent's Day is in September!!
