Here is some history on the Dodge Inc. business, Dodge, Inc. began in Chicago in the mid 1920s by Ray E. Dodge, a former track star in the 1924 Olympics. In 1930 he moved the company to Los Angeles to begin making “Oscars” for Hollywood’s Academy Awards.
The company used 5 different finishes for its cast metal pieces, but their trademark high-gloss bronze finish with two-tone highlights of rich red-golden copper from the Southwest’s great copper mines, earned Dodge the tag line, “The Best of the West.” What a fun addition to your antique collection these bookends would make!
