Description
 
Morgan Stanley merged with Dean Witter in 1997, the year of these bookends. The Dean Witter name was subsequently dropped in 2001 which makes these bookend quite rare.

Morgan Stanley was founded by the grandson of J.P. Morgan after the passage of the Glass-Steagall Act. Firms were required to split their investment banking and commercial banking business. Henry Morgan and Harold Stanley left J.P. Morgan to form Morgan Stanley and began business in 1935. In 1997 they merged with Dean Witter Discover & Co which was the financial services arm of Sears Roebuck which was previous spun off. In 1998 the firm name changed to Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co. In 2001, Dean Witter was dropped from the name and they are now known simply as Morgan Stanley. This make collectibles bearing the Morgan Stanley Dean Witter name quite rare.
