Red and Grey-Green Marble Bookends 1990s Postmodern Memphis

$500Asking Price

About

A pair of substantial bookends with great decorative appeal. These quadrant bookends can hold up a good heft of books but not too heavy to be easily handled and moved about to create the best decorative effect. The deep reds and grey-greens in the marble offer plenty of punchy contrast. The scale of each is perfect for sitting on a shelf or leaving out on a table as pleasing sculptural objects. We believe they were produced in India in the 1990s, as they are a little rough: they don't have the very high quality you'd find from Italian productions of the period. What they lack in the finesse of their finish, they make up for in overall satisfying shape, color and decorative value. Very easy on the eye.
