Wonderful vintage Italian 5.5" bookend pair, each in what appears to be mottled green marble and both with large floral micro mosaic medallions! Okay, so not quite what we normally have when it comes to Italian micro mosaics but, when I saw these, I just couldn't pass by. Yes, they're a bit newer but wouldn't they be fabulous decorative accents for the micro mosaic collector! I'm not quite sure about the stone, they may be composite marble but definitely stone, they weigh 5 lbs 9 oz, so roughly 44 ounces each! Priced to move, mostly fun pieces but the decorative potential is great! Sure to go, don't miss them!
Good-very good condition. As you can see, the mosaics are both pristine with no missing or repaired tesserae. The bookends have a few edge chips, all visible in the images. See pictures for measurements.
