I think these ceramic children’s bookends are absolutely delightful! At first I was confused by the cork stoppers, but then I realised that they’re filled with sand to make them heavier and more functional at propping your books up. They’re in excellent condition for their years – I’m not sure of their exact date, but at a guess (a bit of an educated guess I’m afraid!) I’d say that they date to sometime between the 1950s and ’60s. They seem to be hand painted, including the lovely illustrations in the books that they’re holding – such great detail!
A wonderful pair for a child’s nursery, and a great idea for a baby shower gift.
Dimensions: Each bookend measures 13cm tall x 9cm wide x 10.5cm deep
