Vintage VIRGINIA METALCRAFTERS BRASS Newport Pineapple Americana Bookends

Up for offer is a pair of solid brass Pineapple bookends made by Virginia Metalcrafters.

  • The back of each one is marked: NEWPORT N8-2. Markings include the VMC logo as well as a pineapple within a circle.
  • They measure approx 6 1/2" high and are almost 4" across at the widest.
  • Condition: They are without damage or noticeable wear! Lacquer finish on the fronts shows NO rubs or scratching. Undersides still have little felt pads to protect table or shelf surface. NOTE shiny lacquered surface was difficult to capture in photos. Any blurry whitish areas are due to glare and/or reflection. There is NO discoloration on either piece!

    A beautiful pair of brass bookends from a highly respected maker. (VMC is no longer in business.) Great American theme - would make nice house warming gift! FYI: The pineapple has served as a symbol of hospitality through the history of the Americas. Noticed by Columbus and taken back to Europe, the sweet fruit has symbolized a warm welcome since Colonial times.


  • SHIPPING INSIDE US: We do not charge a fixed rate for shipping. We base our shipping costs on the actual weight of the item. It is a "calculated" cost based on USPS postal zones. The more zones/further away you are from MD the greater the cost. This means to ship to California and other west coast states costs MORE than to ship to nearby neighboring states such as PA, NJ, VA etc. We will combine shipping on multiple purchases. Please note: We try to estimate actual weight of package as best we can. If package turns out a little bit lighter that expected, and shipping is less than calculator estimate, this difference was not intentional. We do not charge a handling fee.


    EXPLANATION OF SHIPPING COSTS INSIDE US (PLEASE READ): My goal is to keep your shipping costs as low as possible while wrapping safely/securely. We offer First Class OR Parcel Post in addition to Priority whenever there is a cost saving. We NEVER CHARGE A HANDLING FEE. When I list an item I estimate how much the package will weigh (securely wrapped) and enter that weight on the listing. 's listing page then provides you a calculated shipping from my zip code to yours, based on that weight. If your shipping seems HIGH, PLEASE CONSIDER WHERE YOU ARE LOCATED. If you have questions/concerns please write!


    PAYMENT DETAILS inside & outside USA (International): Payment is requested within five (5) business days. We accept PayPal and normally mail item immediately (same day/next day depending on when payment is received). PLEASE NOTE: If you pay within 12 hours of the sale's close we will be able to achieve the 1 day handling promise. If you pay later, we sometimes have other obligations making it difficult to mail immediately. In those cases please rest assured we will have your package in mail as soon as physically possible.

  • Maryland residents also pay 6% sales tax.

  • INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: We welcome your offer! PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING explanation of Worldwide shipping options BEFORE offerDING. We always offer Priority Mail. It includes Insurance for loss/breakage and has Tracking of shipment as well. This method is expensive but it is the only method that protects YOUR investment.

  • For those customers that prefer First Class shipping, we might consider this option for some items but ONLY IF YOU, THE BUYER, SPECIFICALLY REQUEST IT and agree to ASSUME the RISK. First Class has NO TRACKING/NO INSURANCE. Delivery time can be inconsistent, sometimes taking a LONG TIME to arrive. If we agree to mail your item via First Class PLEASE understand that NOTHING can be done if package is lost or damaged. I am sorry but WE CAN NOT AFFORD TO REFUND MONEY FOR ITEMS SENT FIRST CLASS if they are lost/damaged. If you have questions please write BEFORE offerDING.
  • ALSO PLEASE NOTE: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the shipping company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
