Polar Bear Chalkware Bookends

Regular price $95.00 Sale

These bookends are similar to the Polar Bear bookends manufactured as souvenirs for 'Sam & Barbara' the resident polars bears of London Zoo in the early 20th Century.

In 1905 they famously escaped their enclosure by biting through the padlock that secured their cage.

These chalkware figures would date between the 1940's-1950's.
