These Herculean effort bookends from the Executive Gift Shoppe depict the mythical hero Atlas pushing hard against side of your stack of books. They are a fun and whimsical way to keep your books in place, the larger the stack, the harder Atlas will seem to be pushing! They have a green marble base and Atlas is made of solid brass. Each bookend weighs in at 6 1/4 pounds so these bookends can handle even the most Olympian stack of books. Packaged in a gift box.
