For neatly grouping volumes, notebooks or desktop papers. This weighty bookend pair features simply shaped owl forms with carved feather markings.

Nambu Cast Iron was first made in the middle of the 17th century in Iwate, Northern Japan. A master from Kyoto was summoned there to create an iron pot for a tea ceremony, and it was the beginning of the Nambu Tekki (Cast Iron) craft. It became exemplary of Japanese Traditional Craft, and is still popular today. The black color is the result of a Japanese lacquer glaze call urushi which prevents rust. The Owl Bookends are part of a range of animal and symbol designs created in the famed material by designer T. Baba.

Heavy, Stylish, with a Wonderful Patina

By: Ana S., Designer (Madison)

Great bookends! In a world of cute and kitschy bookends, these Owl Bookends are a rare find. They are heavy and just the right height to hold up larger books (8"-10"+). The stylized owl is wonderful and they have a rustic patina to them.

Awesome bookends

By: Debby H., Homeowner (Florida)

I wasn't sure, looking at the photos, if they would be substantial enough to hold up any books, but liked them well enough to try. They are great - plenty heavy for the size; first set came in with damage on the one base but a new set was sent out and they were fine. I think they are a little overpriced considering what other bookend sets cost, but if you want/need a great pair of owl bookends, these are great !
