These alabaster bookends feature Italian Saints Catherine and Bernardino of Siena. Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal gift for everyone with a devotion to these two evangelizers of the Middle Ages.
St. Catherine was a joyful Christian from a young age. She was a mystic, peacemaker, and called many to repentance for love of God. She is a Doctor of the Church.
St. Bernardino was a great preacher despite his poor voice, and called all to repentance and action against the evils of the day.
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"x8", including the 4"x6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
"Saints Catherine and Bernardino of Siena, pray for us. Amen."
