Classically elegant with an age old Venetian look. A pair of solid brass gondola rope mounts have been made into bookends by adding a brass plate to each base. A unique and perfect gift for a book lover. A gorgeous addition to many different decors. The patina is wonderful and the brass has a lovely worn smooth feel. Their combined weight is 7lbs. They each measure7 5/8" tall and have a width of 8 1/2". In excellent vintage condition!
