Still very serviceable for your shelf or table, this Art Nouveau Telescoping Bookend is 11" long when closed . The three bar rack opens to 20". The brass ends are a very Art Nouveau design with flowers on a hammered background. The decorative ends measure 8 1/2" wide by 6" tall. This item would be nice to display antique books or use in the kitchen for cookbooks. Condition is very good. Slides to positions well. I have not tried to polish the item. Brass shows wear in places, but I like the patina. No makers mark. Circa very early 1900's.
