PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Add character to your desk or heft to your bookcase: organise your books with decorative ceramic bookends masquerading as two stacks of favourite volumes; including ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘A Tale of Two Cities’, ‘Jane Eyre’, ‘Moby Dick’ and ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’. Personal libraries have long been home to book-themed whimsy – from the false bookcase door, humorously marked by the volume ‘La Porte’, at Oxburgh Hall in Norfolk, to trompe l’oeil by Giuseppe Crespi (1665-1747). The set of bookends are weighty enough to hold several volumes and are designed with protective foam pads on the base to avoid scratches. The cheerful designs, from illustrations by contemporary American illustrator Jane Mount, are highlighted with a lustrous gold foil finish. The left bookend simulates three books and four on the right.

Lovely item for a bibliophile (especially half price in the sale!)

The bookends are beautiful. However, I noticed that they are marked as made in China. I despair. Disappointing and unnecessary. Surely we could source such items made in the UK?
