Antique Telescoping Folding Bookend Rack Art Nouveau Cast Brass

Antique telescoping cast brass folding bookends, Art Nouveau, with water lily pattern

We are very pleased to be able to offer for your consideration this beautiful Art Nouveau bookrack.

This antique bookrack is ingenious. Not only is it a very beautiful piece, it's highly practical as well. This wonderful piece has the ability to telescope, and expand in width, to accommodate a growing collection of books. Plus it looks beautiful doing it, the end pieces are flat panels of cast brass with a wonderful, Art Nouveau, design motif of lily pads and a water lily blossom centered at the top of each arch. The end panels also fold flat for convenient storage. The piece looks to be painted in a faux green patina, but given time I'm sure it would develop it's own natural patina of similar color and warmth.

Stored this bookend measures 12 5/8 inches wide, 6 3/8 inches deep, and 3/4 inches tall. When the book end is unfolded it is 13 inches wide, 6 3/8 inches deep, and expands to approximately 23 3/4 inches. This book end weighs 1.75 pounds.

Condition- Aside from some wear along the bottom of the rails and side brackets, that reveal the brass beneath, this bookend is in really beautiful condition. And is ready to do accent your favorite collection of books.

This really is a beautifully designed bookend, from the way it folds flat to store, to the beautiful decoration on the cast bracket ends, it will make a wonderful accent to your library or office.
