This is a charming pair of wooden bookends made for childrens' books. They measure 3 1/4" high by 2" wide and 2" deep. They are in excellent condition.
The bookends one a Victorian style woman and the other a Victorian style man, each is hand painted in Victorian style era costume. I have used them for tiny books of sonnets for years. They make a charming gift for a small child who has begun to read. Or perhaps for someone like me, who is young at heart.

The retailer in me wants more dimension, color, texture and artistry. Beauty or whimsey are a must.
