Our bookends are beautifully created from solid pieces of recycled wood from parts of a dismantled structure.
Full of mid-century style charm and simplicity, these bookends are smoothly sanded overall, and finished with a luscious hand-rubbed beeswax and linseed oil to protect and highlight wood grain and color. Simple triangular design will display your books tastefully in a contemporary or modern setting.
The wood is very old, and many pieces will bear over 100 years of growth rings. The metal part is new aluminum, smoothed, brushed, eased and polished.
Heavy duty black rubber bumpers are screwed into place, and perform well as a modern "lift" and keep the bookends from sliding easily on your shelves.
This listing is for a set of two bookends but some shelves have sides and need just one bookend, so if you would like a single bookend, we can set up an order screen.
Recycled wood comes with old nail holes and other character marks like shown in the photos, but not every piece will. If you prefer a more "perfect " appearance with no blemishes, please leave us with a note "Modern" at checkout.
