I was staying in the quaint town of Clarence, NY these last few days, and spent some time haunting various antique and collectible places. When I saw these monk bookends for $12 I knew they were just the thing for keeping our breviaries and hymnals tidy and accessible. Aren't they nice? I think they must be Benedictines. Unfortunately there is no identifying marking or label so I can only guess where they were made. Spain or Mexico, maybe.
