Sailing Ship Bookends
Solid hardwood bookends
with a colorful model ship on each end. The model is that of
a fully rigged sailing ship with a Mizzen Mast sail on the
stern of the ship. Ships rigged in this fashion proved
easier to handle in the North Atlantic winds. Thousands of
ship of this style were built all over the world and many
became famous for their endeavors. HMS Bounty was one of
corner pieces called "furniture" give it a finished nautical
look and protection to the edges.
The "Age of Sail" was the most romantic era on the high
Tall ships plied every
ocean doing trade, exploration and passenger transportation
for hundreds of years. Many of those ship still exist today
and our Sailing Ship Bookends celebrate that tradition by
giving your den or office a very nautical look.
An excellent gift for someone who enjoys the the
romance of the sea.
