Bookends - Scrolled Design
Display your favorite reads in style with this pair of sturdy, handmade bookends. They make a nice addition to any home or office, are a great gift for the avid reader, and make a thoughtful iron (6th) anniversary present.
These bookends are hand-forged, which is the process of heating and shaping metal using a hammer and anvil. There are some photos of the bookends being made to illustrate the process.
These bookends utilize a scroll design pattern, which is a traditional blacksmithing design element going back centuries and seen in gates, railings and numerous other hand-forged pieces.
This listing is for one paired set (2 total) of bookends. Each bookend set is made-to-order by hand so the exact dimensions may vary slightly.
The scrolled bookends that I purchased are gorgeous and substantially made. Good for both large or small books and adds a rustic, high quality look to the office. I will definitely order from Wicks Forge again!
A wedding gift for a friends daughter which seemed a bit unique and appropriate. Hope they like it. We have a house in limerick and I applaud all things Hand crafted
Seems like a nice useful item...thanks
My granddaughter loved them! Thank you!
Absolutely beautiful in their simplicity and will function well for heavier books, cannot wait for my recipient to get this!
I bought these bookends for use above a closet, but since that area is currently decorated with a garland for Christmas (hiding most of the books in the process) I popped them into my regular bookcase, where I was previously using 'invisible' bookends. This was a mistake! They look so good there, I think I'll have to buy another set for the originally planned location, after Christmas. They are beautiful, well made, and heavy enough for large/awkward books. They really make a lovely architectural statement in my 'old-world' styled reading-room.
