Back to Books – part I

Cast Bronze Trumpeting Elephant Bookends (LEO Design)

With summer vacation in the home stretch, I turn my attention to the Fall—back-to-school, books, and bookends. I love collecting bookends.  Perhaps it’s because I love books so much. Anyway, I’ve just purchased several nice pairs of vintage bookends, mostly from the 1920’s and 1930’s.  Over the next few days I’ll share a few of them with you.

Shown above, a rather large pair cast in bronze.  The pair of trumpeting elephants march forward, trunks arching over their backs.  Larger than most bookends, they would easily hold-up your large hardbacks—all with engaging elephant energy.  Please click on the photo to learn more about them.

More bookends tomorrow.
