Item details

Vintage from the 1970s

Materials

solid brass, felt paper

Dimensions

Height: 6 Inches; Width: 5 1/8 Inches

Great pair of solid brass bookends in the shape of scallop seashells for coastal or beach-inspired decor.

We love the graduated rectangular base, which contrasts nicely with the otherwise rounded shape, and the curved lines of the seashells. The bookends have great patina; as can be seen in the photos, the interior surface has a shinier finish, and if that is preferred, they should polish out to a bright shine (we have good success with Peek Polish). Black felt paper covers on the bottom. Sticker reads "Solid Brass, Hand Made in India." Perfect as a graduation or housewarming gift.

MEASUREMENTS:
6 in. tall x 5 1/8 in. wide; base measures 4 x 2 5/16 in.

CONDITION: Very good vintage condition. There are a few scratches and some minor discoloration (most of which should polish out) consistent with age and previous use.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
