I loved these vintage bookends the moment I saw them. The pattern of the horse's mane and the precision of the horse's features is so telling of the art deco style. I also love their creamy white color which would really pop on a bookshelf.

Each horse is approximately 3 1/4" wide, 4 1/2" tall, and 2" deep and made of ceramic. There is crazing of the ceramic glaze. They are marked "Made in Japan Handpainted" on the bottom. The bookends are weighted inside by sand or some other material. There are two imperfections as noted in pictures 4 and 5. But because each side is the same, it is easy to position each horse in such a way that the imperfections are not noticeable.

Add some style to your boring bookshelf!
