    Wow! Right under my nose all these years. . .

    With the winter in full swing and snowed in with two-feet of snow, my wife was on a mission to "sort" through
    the accumulations of "things" that once belonged to some of our departed relatives.

    For the past several days, there would be a collection of items on a table that my wife would ask if I wanted to keep
    or toss out. . . and then there were these bookends. . . all tarnished, but were made of copper & brass so I looked
    for any maker's mark and low and behold there was! Walter von Nessen design made by the Chase Brass & Copper
    Co., Inc.

    After some research I was pleased to learn that these Art Deco-style bookends were produced in the 1930's
    and had current market selling prices up to $850.

    Moral of this story, always check.

    Those are incredible They were not cheap when purchased new. Pay close attention to everything else that came from that relative. If they paid good money for this they bought other things as well.

    Chase Brass had its origin in Waterbury, CT when it was part of the U.S. Button Company. I'm sure they manufactured many of the military buttons being found by T'Netrs today. Great save there by you.
