Antique Brass Adjustable Bookends
An antique turn of the 20th century brass adjustable bookends. The bookends feature William Shakespeare’s profile on one side and John Milton’s portrait on other end. Additional decorations include Roman styled columns, urns, quill and paper, olive trees, and scrolls. The inner rods that come up to make the bookends longer are not brass. There are no marks to indicate a manufacturer.
