Comments about Product: Looked for the perfect thank you gift to give our sister and brother-in-law for inviting us to stay in their beautiful home during the chaos of Hurricane Sandy. They love the bookends. Looking forward to seeing the bookends displayed.
Comments about Product: Although these bookends are beautiful (even more so than the picture), I will be returning them. The description says that these bookends are solid brass. They are not. Instead, they are hollow except for the tissue paper stuffed inside. Perhaps that is why other reviewers mentioned that the bookends are less heavy than expected.
Comments about Product: My 9 year-old boy/girl twin grandchildren closely resemble these beautiful sculptures, and they worked odd jobs for a year to purchase them for their mother for Christmas. She home-schools them, and she has instilled in them a love of reading.
When she opened the package, her eyes filled with tears. My grandson commented, "See, Grammy, I TOLD you she would cry!!"
These are beautiful and meaningful, and they will be forever treasured.
Comments about Product: I was looking for a pair of bookmarks which would hold some of my grandson's books. This just hit it. The workmanship and semi-heavy nature of the two pieces are just the right touch. Love the subtle colors. I absolutely adore them and it accomplishes the purpose for which it was purchased.
Comments about Product: Admired this product for quite awhile and finally received it as a Christmas gift from my husband. It has been an attraction on my mantle to both young and old. It portrays and signifies the importance of reading in our family. It truly is heirloom quality.
Comments about Product: The Reading Children Bookends make a unique and great Valentines' Day gift - especially for grandmothers. They are well made, and very detailed in their design. However, they are too small and too light for other than very small books as bookends.
Comments about Product: My husband bought this for me as a Christmas gift and it was one of the most amazing and surprising gifts as it was truly from his heart. I read constantly and this set reminds me of myself and my husband sitting together in harmony. I love the warmth and charm of this set and the attention to detail is amazing. It is on our dresser and when I get up it is the first thing I see. LOVE this set!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Comments about Product: I am very please with these bookends. They are high quality and are beautiful on my shelves. They add a touch of warm elegance. I want to buy them for my sister. I think she will love them too.
Comments about Product: As a retired teacher, these book ends reminded me of my former profession, with children engrossed in reading a favorite book. When I added new bookshelves to my home I was looking for some nice book ends. When I saw these in your catalog, I knew they were the ones I wanted! They are beautiful!
