[September 2021] My wife managed to pick up her own pair of bookends. And they’ve just arrived 🙂
[28/3/2019] Many thanks to Nadine for getting in touch and providing some great images of these boy bookends. 🙂
I now know that these were sold as a pair, each facing a different way.
This is one of the early Duron pieces I have found registered with British Trade. What is a mystery is why it took from August 1957 until February 1959 for the registration to be awarded. I was not able to see any other potential designs challenging it and nothing on the British Trade forms to suggest anything.
