    New bronzes

    Actually, that's a lie. These are really "cold cast bronze" also known as resin cast. Bronze powder is mixed in with plastic resin and cast into rubber molds. These are small pieces that I didn't think would be appropriate to cast in bronze (too expensive) and I could do the cold-casting myself, so I gave it a shot.

    Do these bookends do anything for ya?

    Glad to hear it, Rodger.

    I have to add some things up, and I need to post the dimensions so you'd know what you're getting (they're small), but I'm thinking $25 ea or $45 for a pair. (+ shipping, unless a handoff can be arranged) A pair can be two of the same, if that's what you want. In real bronze, I'm guessing (without actually getting a quote) they'd be double that. I can have them cast in bronze, if anyone's interested.

    I like them but don't know where I'd use them. All of our bookcases are full and aren't in need of bookends.

    Yeah, that's the problem with bookends. I've made places for books on top of bookcases, a windowsill, and our desk, just to display bookends I've collected. More form than function, I guess.

    Thanks for the comments, fellas.

    Mark, going by memory but I think approx. 3x6x1 with a 2.5" bronze tang.

    I'd like to get a pair of the grouse & woodcock ones when you decide to sell.
