Late 19th Century Swiss Black Forest Carving Walnut Book Slide or Bookends.

Book slides are one of my favorite inventions! Practical and ornamental, they add a little antique craftsmanship to any home.

The hand carved design is characteristic of the Alder Wood Tree. It is a member of the Birch family and is unique in that it has both pine cones and leaves. The coat of arms for Austria, it was popular throughout Europe, for smoking both fish and coffee.

The slide measures 15" long by 5 1/2" wide and 7" tall with an expanded with of 24".

Excellent condition

Thank you so much for stopping by and as always, please feel free to contact me with any questions.
