Alabaster bookends feature the classic Celtic cross with a Claddagh ring and a short Irish blessing for a married couple. Able to keep heavy books in line, these bookends both organize and decorate your home. They make the perfect personal gift for newlyweds or any married couple of Irish heritage.
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.
Each measures roughly 6" x 8", including the 4"x 6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
"May God be with you and bless you.
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortunes and rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.
May Joy and Peace surround you both, contentment latch your door,
and happiness be with you now and God bless you evermore.
