Cast Iron Art Deco Bookends: "Eve Before the Fall" (LEO Design)

Before eating from the forbidden "Tree of Knowledge," Adam and Eve had a pretty sweet life. No hunger, no work, no trouble, no shame.  And a beautiful garden, to boot.  But such wasn't to last—and here we are now.

This pair of cast iron Art Deco Bookends, made in the 1920's, show Eve luxuriating before a date palm tree in the Garden of Eden. Let them bring some stylish "Biblical Literacy" to your desk, den or bookshelf.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about them.
