Dante's Beatrice bust - 1920s cast metal figure - National Metalizing Co. Armor Bronze

Regular price $25.00

The love of Dante's life, Beatrice, as a bookend from the National Metalizing Co. under the brand name Armor Bronze, is some kind of composite material clad with a bronze finish. She would have originally been part of a pair, with Dante on the other end of the books.

Likely from the 1920s or 1930s. You can view one of the original catalogs here (Spoiler alert: Beatrice isn't in it)

SIZE 6.5" tall

CONDITION Very good. There are some areas where the bronze cladding has worn through, but they only add to the antique charm.
