Antique pair of faux painted bookends circa 1900. The faux books are Gardiner's History of England Ducie, Vol 111 and Vol IV.

They are felt lined to protect books, and so strong they can support most any desktop book collection. Each bookend measures 7.5 inches high, 5 inches deep with a 6 inch base.
