Handsome & Useful


Cast Iron "Sailing Ship" Bookends with Verdigris Brass Finish (LEO Design)


When there's a man around the house, things always seem go better when he's both handsome and useful. Likewise, these bookends will not disappoint.

A muscular, fully-rigged ship plows toward the viewer, beautifully-sculpted with energy and intent—the ship seems to leap forward, off the bookends.  The iron castings have been dressed in a brass finish and supplemented with a verdigris patina.  They would make a handsome and useful addition to your library, office or bookcase.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
