Antique Scotty Dog Figural Cast Iron Bookends with Highly Enameled porcelain finish – Vernois

Product #M578

Antique pair of figural Scotty dog cast metal bookends that are marked on the inside of the dogs with the word, ‘Vernois’. We have found this same signature and font logo signature used on an old letterhead for the company ‘Mt. Vernon Furnace & Manufacturing Company. This company made a stove that they referenced as the Vernois, and they also sold enameled stoves, which is interesting since these bookends have an enameled finish which is quite rare to find on a pair of bookends.
I have not found a definite link to connect the Scotty dog bookends with the Mt. Vernon Furnace & Manufacturing Company, however simply the name of this company makes one think that there was more product manufactured than just stoves. This pair of bookends measure 6 1/4″ wide at the widest point, while the bases are 5 1/4″ wide by 2 1/8″ deep and 5 1/4″ high. If you enjoy dogs or are looking for a fun pair of antique bookends to add to your collection, then you will want to definite consider this pair! Circa 1930’s
