These two little nature dioramas are also functional bookends. Each is made from heavy, clear lucite, and contains a butterfly specimen mounted on a branch with dried flowers. Because they are clear, it was difficult to capture these in photos, but in person, they are quite striking.

The bookends measure 5.5” tall x 6” long x 2.75” deep. The boxes containing the specimens are slightly smaller than the mounts, measuring 4.25” tall x 5” long x 2.25” deep.

These are in great shape, with only very minor wear consistent with careful use. There were originally 4 small, round felt pads on the bottom corners, but some of those are now missing.

Domestic Shipping: The rate shown is for a 3 lb. insured parcel post package shipped to the zip furthest from me, but actual shipping to your zip code may be less. Feel free to convo me for exact rates. I will refund postage overpayments.

Combined Shipping: I’m happy to ship multiple purchases together to lower shipping costs, but I don’t pre-enter a combined amount as I prefer to figure it based on packed weight (it’s usually cheaper that way). If you’d like to know the cost to ship specific items together, just convo me. Combined shipping will always be less than shipping items separately.

International Shipping: Costs may be lower to your country. Feel free to convo me for exact rates.
