Here is a great pair of vintage cast-iron bookends with an exotic Egyptian theme.

As you can see, each bookend pictures the famous "Sphinx" in profile.

The sides are decorated with Egyptian "reed-bundle" columns and languid papyrus blossoms while the top features the ancient "winged scarab" symbol.

Arguably one of the most recognizable symbols in human history, Ancient Egyptians believed the scarab symbolized strength, resurrection, and the Lord of the Sun, Ra.

You will notice that each of these decorative elements is pictured in wonderful dimension, particularly the profile of the might Sphinx.

Sphinxes were often included in temples and on sarcophagi, due to their strong connection to the solar deity, Sekhmet.

While both bookends show some wear, one exhibits slightly brighter marks. Both show a few extremely minor areas of light rust.

Overall, these wonderfully unique and exotic bookends remain in good vintage condition.

Measurements: Each bookend is 3 1/2" tall, 4 1/4" wide and 1 3/4" deep, (1 lb., 3 oz each) Total Weight: 2 lbs., 6 oz.

Item ID: 2650
