Description:  This pair of high quality and unusual bookends was crafted by a very talented machinist who recycled a vintage airplane engine part into a fantastic set of machine age bookends.  A modernist statement made much earlier than any of the other bookends we have seen made from engine parts.  We also have a pair of bookends of the same vintage fashioned from engine pistons that will be listed separately.
