We have captured a loveable cartoonish likeness of a whale in cast iron, simply yet effectively hand painted. Adding a homey and artsy accent to a bookshelf or countertop area, Our Whale Bookends make the perfect gift for a Moby bibliophile, child, or anyone fond of the wide open marine wild. The subtle attention to detail on the Whale Bookends helps the simple design capture both the attention and affection of all who view them. The Whale Bookend measures 8 x 3 x 3 inches. The split in the middle enables the use of only one piece as a bookend, with the headpiece on one end and the tail on the other, or the use of a pair, for a more traditional bookend look to decorate an office or fireplace. Make sure to view the rest of our bookends; they're truly unique, and there are certainly others that will make the perfect decoration for another book spot in your home or a great gift for and art or book lover.
