Pair of green Rookwood bookends. Bookends shaped like open books with a vine of flowers growing over the open pages. A bird (crow? raven?) sits on the open pages spanning one corner to the other.

According to donor, Barbara F. Barbour: "My mother (Inez Dohrmann Piscel) purchased all the pieces in this donation under her married name, Mrs. Harold A. Fletcher, where at that time she lived in West Clay Park, San Francisco-from approximately 1920-1933. The bookends...were part of her household until her death (1982) where upon I inherited them."

Used: Harold Augustus Fletcher | Inez Dohrmann Pischel
