Antique pair of faux painted bookends circa 1900. The faux books are Gardiner's History of England Ducie, Vol 111 and Vol IV. The two are so heavy and so well painted to resemble leather bindings and marbelized paper that it is hard to tell they are not real. 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. Excellent original condition.
