2 Unique Baroque Victorian Metal & Marble Bookends Or Wall Shelf /sconce For Sale
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:
top( or base)- 4 inches at the widest
point, 8 inches long at the back, and ¾ inch thick.
metal part- Varies in width from 6 inches to ½ inch in some places. 12 ½ inches

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
