Lovely Ladies

Books can be heavy-in their weight as well as their subject matter-so why not support those massive masses of words on your shelf with a pair of equally substantial bookends? Modeled in the spirit of the Machine Age, these retro-classic ladies are no shrinking violets. Their strong deco forms reflect their durability and power to keep your tomes from toppling so you can remove a book without worrying about throwing the rest off balance. Designed by Chris Collicott. Made in Taiwan.

Sold as a set of two.

                        Purchased these bookends for my daughter's graduation since she is a book lover. They're nice looking, but I was disappointed that the face of the woman has no mouth! Also, they are made in China, which I was disappointed to see.

                        These are cool bookends, but they make my thighs hurt just looking at them. Have you tried that exercise?

                        I love this because it represents how women have to do it all. We have to because look at the alternative? Girls rule!
