cool bookends from around the world

Like the umbrella stands I wrote about in an earlier feature, bookends are another decorating accessory impossible to shop for.  So much out there is uninspiring.  But I found some phenomenal ones from my sources:

Berlin via Vienna: These Carl Aübock vintage bookends (above) are simply the bomb.  Made of brass and cane you can buy them from The Original in Berlin store.
New York City via Texas: These waterbuffalo (fancy word for cow!) horn bookends are a stylish addition to any library.  Polished to a glowing shimmer, the sturdy bases make them appropriate for bookends. They’re available from The Evolution Store in SoHo.
Buenos Aires:  Aire del Sur home décor shop has these awesome onyx balls on a heavy metal base.  The finial comes in cream, bordeaux, blue or black rock.
Bath, England: Timothy Richards is better known for his truly spectacular miniature reproductions of some of Britain’s best known buildings.  These split pair bookends model the Palm Room pillars at Spencer House.
