A beautiful solid oak base combines with characterful used horseshoes to create a stunning pair of Bookends. An unusual gift for an equestrian book worm and a charming addition to a country home.
Our oak bases are approximately 15mm deep. You have a choice of light oak or medium oak to complement your own home. The pattern of the grain in the wood together with the gunmetal silver of the horseshoes look simply stunning together.
The Small Bookends (12.5cm/5 inches wide) are perfect for supporting paperbacks.
Medium Bookends (15cm/6 inches wide) work well with larger paperbacks and smaller hardbacks.
Large Bookends (17.5cm/7inches wide) are our largest size working well with heavier hardbacks such as cookbooks.
From your own horses shoes
We’d be delighted to make these for your from your own horse or pony’s shoes. Please measure your shoes at their widest point and select the size that most closely corresponds to the size of your shoes. We don’t cut down any shoes or modify their shape as we are passionate about keeping the story and nature of each shoe so it’s important you chose the size closest to your own horseshoes.
