You'll be glad to hear that there are no clumps of chewed gum under the desks. These vintage bookends sure do look like the old school desks we used sit at. There's a pencil, an apple, the inkwell, a heart, a tic-tac-toe game on the desk and the words SCHOOL DAZE.
The bookends are made of wood with cast iron bases for the desks. The mock books that act as the bookend backs say...READING WRITING HISTORY ARITHMETIC. These will hold a lot more REAL books in between.
Bookends measure 4 1/4 inches across the front of the base, 5 1/2 inches high, 5 inches along the side. A couple of minor nicks to wood. These may need some new little felt 'feet' at bottom as some are missing. One desk has a little something blue stuck to the wood under the desk (NOT gum!!!). We got most of it off but a bit remains for posterity.
These bookends are in great vintage condition. Pure nostalgia and very useful for the educator or the young or every-learning student.
