2 Unique Baroque Victorian Metal & Marble Bookends Or Wall Shelf /sconce:
This an unusual pair of metal and marble decorative pieces that we first thought were wall brackets or mini shelves but then someone mentioned that because it had felt on top rather than a polished marble finish, it might have been designed to be placed with the marble part facing down.. . and since then, they’ve also proven to be great bookends for taller books . …….as well as an occasional door stop.
We know it sounds silly but aside from being very ornate and beautiful, they are amazingly versatile. We’ve included photographs showing it hung on the wall as we’ve had it for many years and our newly discovered use as lovely bookend.
Each one is fairly heavy,( possibly 3-4 lbs) having been created out of a cast metal and solid piece of green marble cut in a half circle. The metal mimics the half circle shape on top and is covered in what appears to be a floral baroque or Victorian design in a brown antiqued finish accented with black on the edges and is hollow in back. They are in very good condition with no chips , scratches on the marble or dents and scratches on the metal.
The measurements are not uniform but their max are: length : 13 ¼ inch long, width: 8 inches , depth : 4 inches.
And here is the break down:
Marble top( or base)- 4 inches at the widest point, 8 inches long at the back, and ¾ inch thick.
The metal part- Varies in width from 6 inches to ½ inch in some places. 12 ½ inches long

Vintage clothing Disclaimer: We are always very particular of anything we sell, however we do specialize in vintage and pre-owned fashion so reasonable wear for their age may occur and should be expected. With many of our items authentically from the 1940’s and 1950’s,and some even being over 60 years old, Because of their age ,button holes, hems and seams may be missing thread or need reinforcing, very small holes and snags in the fabric or lace may occur ( if we see them, we WILL mention them in the listing, so you can decide whether or not to purchase, but some of our items are very ornately embellished and flaws are not easily detected and can be missed during examination) or discoloration may occur . If any of these situations do exist and we don’t mention it, it usually means it was too small of defect to be noticeable while wearing, and does not affect the .garment’s wearability or overall appearance. Because all sales are final and all items are sold AS IS, unless noted differently in the listing, you need be comfortable with this aspect of vintage clothing in order to enjoy these wonderfully unique examples of bygone fashion.

When this occurs, we make the flaws known right from the start, and perfect or not, we ALWAYS strive to include clear description and plenty of pictures. Please also keep in mind that some computer monitors may distort the color of the garment.
