Vintage Pair of Handcrafted Metal Bookends with Meaningful Symbolic Leaves

$480.06per set


Wonderful pair of hand-crafted, early 20th century bookends. With the symbolic meaning of leafs ranging from hope, renewal, revival, fertility and growth to decay, sadness and even death, one could sum it all up by stating that leaves very much represent the circle of life. These rare, weighty and all-handcrafted bookends from the Art Deco era are in very good condition. They may be small in size, but this top quality workmanship was built to last and last they will. Both beautiful and functional this pair is an absolute joy to use, own and look at and will therefor make a great gift. If you like this pair as much as we do then you will love our price. Also, because perfect packing & worldwide delivery from our store to your door in just 4 days are complimentary. Maximum height x width x depth: 6.1 x 6.1 x 4 inches.
