Rare 1931 Gorham Medieval Knight In Archway Bookends Travelers Insurance
An uncommon pair gothic knight in archway nookends from Gorham commemorative of the 1931 Traveler’s Insurance Convention at Palm Beach, Florida. They depict a Midieval knight standing beneath a Gothic arch. These bookends were cast by the Gorham Company, famous as makers of fine silverware and other metalwares, in commemoration of the 1931 Traveler’s Insurance convention held at Palm Beach Florida. Nicely detailed. I have no way to check but we believe them to be made of cast bronze with nickel-plated surface. Each is marked Gorham Co.. Dimensions are about 7.75″ tall x 4.5″ across the flat backs x 3″ deep. They are in very good condition with no split or breaks. The indentation on the one shield is smooth so possibly a manufacturing flaw. The backs show scratching and some little fleabites along the edges. They could use a good cleaning if you like your things shiny. I think they look great the way they are.
