Antique Carved Ivory Lion Bookends -
These handsome boys caught my eye. They were quite heavy and quite pricey. Also, you would need a massive bookcase to show them off properly. I just don’t really hang on to books like I once did. If I have read them, I pass them on. That suits my purposes better than keeping them on a shelf when they should be being read again and again.
Besides, I would always wonder what animal gave up his ivory for human vanity and an object of art.
