I would love to have found the matching piece for today’s lovely art deco bookend, but fortunately our chap is still completely functional by himself – just use a wall or pot plant to support one end of the books, and voilà, you’re sorted! In a way I actually prefer to only use bookends on one end, especially if they’re quite detailed in design like today’s figurine – sometimes they can be a bit too OTT if there’s a pair.
Note: I’m not 100% certain what the metal is that our man is made out of, so we didn’t want to scrub him too hard – and I actually quite like the way the metal’s worn. We have however sanded down the wooded base, which is as good as new!
