This pair of antique bookends has a beautiful and sentimental appeal that will add richness and warmth to your collection.

We think these make a great gift for the expecting mother and make a wonderful addition to any nursery decor.

As you can see, each of the substantial bookends is adorned with a "bronzed" baby bootie.

"Bronzing" is a technique that involves applying a bronze-like surface to an otherwise non-bronze item, like baby shoes.

Sometimes a layer of heavy copper is applied to the surface to produce a very bronze-like appearance.

You will notice that these little boots are absolutely classic; the shoe-laces are even tied into a bow.

The pedestal on which each shoe sits has been given a "bronzed" finish, and features an elegant combination of scrolling at the top with a gadrooned panel around the bottom.

The capital letter "R" has been engraved into the front of each bookend in Old-English script.

You will see a bit of age expected wear to each piece including some minor spots of verdigris, darkening, and some tiny flea-bite scratches here and there.

Overall, this charming set of bookends remains in good antique condition overall.

Measurements: Each bookend measures 6 7/8" long, 3 1/4" wide and 3 3/4" tall, Booties are approximately 4 1/4" long and 2 3/4" tall, (42 .3 oz, each) Total Weight: 84.6 oz, (5 lbs., 5 oz)
