Step back in time with these exquisite Art Deco-inspired brass seashell bookends, a sophisticated addition to any bibliophile's collection or a striking accent in a chic interior design. Crafted in the early 20th century, these bookends capture the elegance of the era with their stylized scallop shell design, embodying both the fascination with marine life and the streamlined aesthetic that defined the period.
Each bookend stands as a testament to the craftsmanship of the time, with a rich patina that only decades of admiration can bestow. The lustrous brass has developed a gentle aged look, giving the bookends a character and history as rich as the tomes they hold. Their considerable weight speaks to the quality of the materials and the solidity of their construction, ensuring that they serve not only as decorative pieces but as functional supports for your treasured literature.
This pair of bookends is not merely a utilitarian item but a slice of history, reflecting the Art Deco movement's influence on everyday objects. The movement, known for its love of geometric patterns and symmetrical designs, is beautifully represented in the detailed ridges and curves of the seashells.
Vintage Brass Scalloped Sea Shell Bookends
4" H x 5" W x 2.75" D
A white spot, my best guess is paint or a scuff mark, located on the interior edge. The white would only be visible if you had the bookend facing out the wrong way (refer to photos)
