Before 1914 just about all high-end sculptural artwork was solid bronze. About that time a company called Kathodian Bronze Works began manufacturing sculptural artwork such as bookends and statuary using a process imported from Europe around the turn of the century known as electroplating or electroforming .  About the same time a company called National Metalizing Company also began making this statuary, calling the finish "Armor Bronze".  After WWI the assets of this Armor Bronze division were spun off as a new entity - The Armor Bronze Company of New York City.  Armor Bronze relocated to Tauton Mass. in 1934. Much of the company's statuesque larger bookends were made in the teens and the twenties.  By the end of the Roaring Twenties the only “bronze clad” manufacturer left was Armor Bronze. The Great Depression swallowed-up most of “bronze clad” artisans – as the process was deemed to be too expensive and time consuming.
