"Beautiful, beautiful book ends"

My wife bought these for my birthday and I just love the artistry. The soapstone material is unique, the carving beautiful, and the weight is perfect for holding books. This is the kind of possession you pass on to your children.

"Intricate and beautiful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is another beautiful design from Gulam Rasool - I have now five of his different items and I love the intricate detail and the patient work that goes into these. Note though that the jar is larger than the measurements provided online. Mine is about 7.5 inch high and 6 inch wide, so that the proportions also look somewhat different than the photo. I asked for their correction by the novica team but this has not happened. Other than this, it is a stunning piece and I am very happy with it.
