Beautiful pair of Italian marquetry bookends. The semi circle shaped folding bookend are made from olive wood. The have delicate inlaid marquetry work of birds and flowers in an Art Deco style. They are a rich warm color. The wood as noted is olive wood.
The bookends have a partial tag on the bottom denoting they were from the Gargiulo's Lace House in Sorrento, Italy. I know that the tag is from that wood maker because I have a tobacco box from the same shop with a date of 1930.
These are a wonderful estate find in which the previous owners labeled many of their items they received from their travels or pieces that were passed down from family members.
I love the warm color of the bookends.
I have one other Italian Sorrento olive wood marquetry item in my shop. If you are interested in purchasing both items please send a request for savings in combined shipping.

- To fulfill your order
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (if it is a gift, whom for and any message or information regarding them), if you contact me directly or note so on your order.
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.

Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
