A fabulous pair of luster-glazed ceramic bookends made by California company Jaru in the 1970s. Jaru Art Products was started in 1950 by Jack and Ruth Hirsh in Culver City, Calif. The name is a combination of the first two letters of their first names (Ja and ru). The luster-glazed pieces were more difficult to make than conventionally glazed ceramic pieces and consequently, pieces in great condition are desirable.
