Cal Bookend - Black (Pair)
Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 4 reviews

$ 120

A clean, architectural solution for keeping your prized volumes upright and organized. The Cal Bookend is comprised of two steel rods, which elegantly bend across each other and are locked into place by a single bolt.  

Named for its resemblance to the caltrop—a rudimentary antipersonnel weapon—but in this case a tool of warfare has been redeployed as an object whose purpose is to literally uphold knowledge.

Very Creative Solution

I purchased these bookends because of their unique design. Once I received them I was more than pleased. I used the pair in my family room so that I have quick access to my bird books. I see so many different species in my yard now that I live near a pond and a river. I also put the chrome pair too.

Totems for titles

Nearly every prior time I set myself the task of purchasing the bookends, they were sold out in the matte black finish. So imagine my satisfaction in having finally nabbed a pair - they’re unobtrusive, yet surprisingly weighty.

Very heavy, and high quality.

These are very nice, are quite heavy, and appear to be well-made, with a fine gloss coat.

One thing I noticed in person, which was not as apparent in a picture, is that due to the exaggerated length of the upright and proximity to the two supporting legs, they are quite phallic.
