Heavy Classics Bookends with Dante & Homer (LEO Design)

History’s two greatest poets—Medieval Florentine Dante Alighieri and Ancient Greek Homer—stand proudly in-profile on this pair of heavy cast iron bookends by Bradley & Hubbard.  Dante was the author of The Divine Comedy, in which he is given a tour of Hell, Purgatory and Paradise (lead by the Roman poet Virgil).  Homer is known for The Iliad and The Odyssey—works which have formed the foundation of the Western literary canon.  This pair of literary lions will certainly add “a touch of knowing” to your handsome library, office or bookshelf.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about them.
