Ben Seibel (1918-1985) studied architecture at Columbia University until his studies were interrupted by military service. Upon his release, Seibel resumed his education at the Pratt Institute, shifting his focus to industrial design. He had a varied and prolific career, producing dinnerware, flatware, furniture, lamps, and wood and metal tabletop accessories. Today, his MidCentury bookends are highly collectible.
These striking MidCentury Modern metal bookends, a very rare Seibel design, were crafted for Jenfred. Almost like elongated railroad tracks, the design is simple and appealing. In excellent condition, they measure 6 1/2" tall x 4 3/4" wide x 5" deep.
