About The Vintage Bookends Inspired by Fraser's End of the Trail sculpture

At roughly 4 pounds each, these character-ridden figures are both visually appealing and highly utilitarian.  

James Earl Fraser completed his End of the Trail sculpture in plaster in 1915 for the San Francisco Exposition.  We can enjoy it thoroughly uon visiting Oklahoma City's  National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.  Its monoumental scale is something you can't plan on experiencing.
