For many years it has been next to impossible to find bookends that reliably hold anything heavier than paperbacks. We have ours cast in Canada from a master pattern of oak leaves and acorns by carver and naturalist Jeff Whiting.
Natural cork base buttons prevent marring of desks or shelves, while providing just the right amount of friction to hold larger, leaning hardcovers. The backs of the bookends are felt covered to protect the books. Polished, then finished with an amber lacquer, the bookends are handsome, effective and understated.
These are marvellous gifts for anyone who reads.
Pairs of bookends are available in two formats: with brass plates ready to be engraved and with plates engraved with Pasteur's famous quotation, "Chance favors the prepared mind".
