This is a very unusual pair of bookends. At first glance, they look like stylish wooden bookends with an interesting cube on top, made from slivers of root, giving them an Art Deco feel. On closer inspection, they reveal a hidden compartment that opens like a trinket box. It would be an ideal place to store desktop items like paper clips, elastic bands, or coins.
One of them has a red anti-slip pad on the bottom. The other probably had one at some point but it has peeled away, revealing a "Swiss made" sticker.
When we acquired them, they were in need of some attention. We've cleaned them and glued the side of one of them that was misaligned so the box part wouldn't open. They now look dapper and quite the talking point of any desktop or bookshelf.
