Chantele’s Etsy Finds – Cast Iron Jack Bookends

Mid Century Modern Bookends

I adore these mid century modern bookends cast in the shape of giant Jacks. These come from Urban Trading Post and are around £18 each of £37 for a pair. I am a big book reader, and constantly have piles of books dotted around the place, so finding some stylish book ends was a must for when we moved. After nosing about I originally thought I wanted blocks of sliced agate (still an option for the bedroom!) as I love the natural look, but I also noticed that while searching for other items I was drawn to a lot of mid century modern items, so I tried looking for ‘mid century modern bookends’, and these babies came up! These are a definite on our want list for when we move. I love them in the silver, purple and deep blue at the moment, so will have to decide which will match the room best, once I have my selves sorted.

    I was in need of some bookend recently as well. I hunted down a lovely pair of stone elephants in black on my local car boot sale. I totally love them especially at the cost of £2 🙂

      A bargain, unique and personal, much better!

    These are great, although I do love sliced agate too. What colours would you go for with agate?

      I have a blue, but I would love a purple or a smoky colour!

    Those are really cute! – I love objects that are functional but still fun to have around.
