Breviary Bookends!

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. 


  1. Very nice! I have bears. They match my demeanor in the morning. :-p

  2. Dear Daria,

    Some body named "Kokila S." at 1:06 AM above added a link that is advertising for a financial tool "Traders Revenge Review." You may want to delete it.

    1. Thanks! Yes, it's a chore keeping up with these spammers.

  3. You made a good buy. I found what looks like an identical set on eBay for $50!

  4. When your books are not in use, those monk bookends are keeping vigil. Doesn't get any better than that! :-)

  5. Such an awesome find!

    I'm envious of your Kenyan LOTH. I wonder if any readers have one, that they aren't using, who would like to sell.
