Martin Boyd pottery bookends. Item 4385.This pair of Martin Boyd pottery bookends are decorated with hand painted scenes of Aboriginal warriors crouched beneath Ghost gum trees. The trees are formed using the sgraffito technique whereby the yellow glaze has been removed with the handle of a brush, or something similar, revealing the white clay below. One side of the tree has then been lined with black to give it definition. The bookends are solid and weigh 940 gms for the pair. They stand 94 mm high, are 112 mm wide and 56 mm deep. The photo below shows that there is a very small chip (3 mm x 3 mm) to the back of one of the pieces. There is also some faint crazing. The Martin Boyd Pottery ran from 1946 to 1955 in Sydney.
