Product Description

These alabaster bookends feature angelic faces from the frescoes of Italian artist Melozzo da Forli. Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal gift for anyone's office or study.

The original frescoes were created for the Church of the Twelve Holy Apostles (Santi Dodici Apostol in Italian) in Rome, Italy. They were removed during a renovation in the early 1700's and are now on display at the Vatican Pinacoteca Art Gallery.


The bookends are made from stone-cast alabaster here in our shop in Steubenville, Ohio. Alabaster is a building and decorating material created from the mineral gypsum that has been used since the time of the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs. It boasts an attractive smooth finish and will last for years to come.

Each measures roughly 6" x 8", including the 4"x 6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
