These Italian bookends have a timeless look that will look as appropriate on a single girl's sofa table as they would on the shelf of a formal study. In a creamy yellow and charcoal grey, they will fit in just about anywhere.

There is typical vintage wear and scuffing on these (as seen on the back of the ears in photo 5), but nothing that takes away from the beautiful craftsmanship of these handcarved pieces. The eyes (they look like taxidermy eyes to me) are a little scratchy but nice.

The label on the bottom reads:
Genuine Alabaster Stone
Handcarved By Firm
Prof G Bessi
Volterra (Italy)

Measures 6 inches tall.
