1927 USS Constitution Restoration Souvenier Set of Matched Bookends Likely of Paul Revere Supplied Copper

Click an Image to Enlarge It
1927 U.S. Frigate “Constitution” Restoration, Souvenier Copper Bookend Matched Pair, Complete, Extremely Fine.

This pair of cast bookends are in the shape of a ship’s wheel, each set on a heavy rectangular base. The wheel itself is about 6” in diameter and the lead-weighted base is about 1.25” x 5.75.” Each bookend looks virtually bright shiny-new thanks to an complete cleaning and added coat of clear protective lacquer, meant to display. At the center of the wheel is the design of the well-known Constitution restoration medal depicting the frigate at full sail. The base of each bookend reads at the bottom: “THIS MATERIAL WAS TAKEN FROM THE U.S. FRIGATE CONSTITUTION 1927.” These bookends also have a potential connection to Paul Revere, who supplied much of the original copper for fittings when the warship was built between 1794 to 1797. A tribute to the oldest active duty warship in the United States Navy. (2 items) Provenance Ex: Alexander Gaston Collection.
