Description

An eye-catching pair for home or office, our bookends celebrate the magnificent Sardis column in The Met. The capital, base, and portions of the shaft of this great Ionic column come from a monumental temple constructed at Sardis (in today's Turkey) and dedicated to Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt and the moon.

Shortened from its original height of 56 feet, The Met's massive column on display in the Greek and Roman galleries lets viewers admire the fine carving of the foliate ornaments on the capital and the fish-scale pattern on the molding at its base. These same decorative details appear on our handsome bookends.

I bought a Roman column about 20 years ago in the museum, it is something very similar to the book holder that they have for sale online, I need to know if they still have it in stock? thank you

The bookends are what they seem in the catalog. I'm pleased with the quality and they hold up the books.

Just purchased these bookends for our library. The detail is stunning and we are very pleased with them, but wish the black base was a lot sturdier to support heavy books more securely.
