Here's a handy book holder that's a lot more useful than bookends because it holds a whole self of books securely and won't slide. Constructed of solid 1" mahogany, it has simply molded feet and pretty urn inlays of both ends similar to what you see in magazine racks, yarn buckets and other functional domestic accessories in the early part of the 20th century. Measures: 20" wide, 7-1/2" deep and 8-1/2" tall.
