Up for sale is this pair of vintage decorative bookends feature a charming Asian farming couple and their baby in black Argillite or Soapstone. (I’m guessing somewhere in the 70s to 90s) The figurines are intricately hand-carved with beautiful details that showcase the couple's traditional clothing. The bookends are a unique and decorative addition to any collection, perfect for those who appreciate Asian art and culture. The bookends feature a bamboo design, suggesting an agricultural theme. The carvings are skillfully executed, highlighting the intricate details of the couple's clothing right down to the baby in the woman’s backpack. These bookends are a wonderful addition to any decor and a great collectible for those interested in Asian art and culture.

The man’s side is about 6-3/4 inches to the top of his hat, the woman’s side is just under 6 inches. The base of each is approximately 3 X 1-3/4 inches. They aren't very heavy weighing in at 2lbs 10oz for the pair.

Great vintage condition with no major chips or cracks. There is a couple of tiny chips on the woman’s base, but hard to see. Please look closely at all pictures and video as they are an important part of the description.

* While I always strive to locate and point out any defect I find, I’m not perfect, so please look at pictures closely and be aware that all vintage items come to you as-is. *
