    The bookends are 6" x 4 3/8" hollow, not like the ronsons these are sectioned together.

    The Bison is very heavy but the top sounds hollow is 8" X 10" approx painted with varnish? 20200706_175950.jpg 20200706_180008.jpg 20200706_180043.jpg 20200706_180144.jpg 20200706_175402.jpg 20200706_175428.jpg 20200706_175608.jpg 20200706_182200.jpg 20200706_182236.jpg 20200706_182456.jpg

    The head is 11 1/2" X 4 1/2" and has Destemone written all over it with a marker
    Ther are no visible marking on any of them.

    I believe only one of the words is destemone. I cannot read the other due to the shading.

    Isn't the other one Demostene? It's a bust of Demosthenes.

    Sorry for the delay I had to step out for a few hours. Here are better images of the name Browen. There are 2 on the base and one on the head written by the previous owner.Thanks 20200707_172552.jpg 20200707_172623.jpg 20200707_172651.jpg Browen and INH

    I think Bronwen has identified the person. I’m not understanding the the shape of it.

    Cuts down on material needed & weight, but also not so different from the way the marble is carved out under the shoulders & chest. It's not really particularly unusual.
