descriptions:

The brass bookends are heavy in weight so that they can stably hold books.

The bottom is lined with a felt so that it won't damage the surface on which the bookends are placed.

FUNDO bookends have the shape of Japanese old-style weights which were used for scaling silk or silver currency in the EDO period. FUNDO shape is still alive as a map symbol for banks today.

The surface of the bookends is IHADA-finished, a crude casting surface. The bookend gradually changes its color over the course of years due to oxidization. The longer it is used, the richer and subtler it becomes.
