these 1970's vintage globe bookends will be a fun addition to your office or library.

a fanciful interpretation of the "old world". spin them to amuse yourself when you get bored. or your computer has crashed.

they are 6 inches high. 5.5 inches deep and 3.5 inches wide. original green felt is still on the bottoms.

a note about condition~

use your zoom function to get a closer look at this pair of bookends.
use and age wear visible. some small long ago paint specks on the wood. just overall general "these have been used" look.

the most noticeable thing is that the globes are slightly different colors. one is a little lighter and the wood ls slightly different color also. they were probably not a pair originally, but somewhere along the way they gotten married.

if you use them two different places on your bookshelves it will not be noticeable. i didn't notice that they were different colors when i bought them at the estate sale.

lastly, if you have good eyes, you will notice that one of the globes is upside down. i took the picture with one of the globes on its back, not upright. so both of the globes are really right side up.


i love "globe" anything. just a fun little 1970's world view especially if you like your "world" to include sailing ships, fanciful locations, and far off mysterious islands.

if the shipping/handling on this listing is less than i have charged then i will happily refund the difference.

here is another pair of bookends i have listed in my shop~
