This is a great pair of Italian carved marble bookends. They are marked Italy '1890' or '0681' but we are not able to distinguish whether or not this was a year or item number. They are in great vintage condition with minimal wear to the marble and there are is slight wear to the edges. They measure 6.6 inches tall by a little over 3.5 inches wide and just under 3 inches deep. Great for the 'under the sea' lover!
