"A home without books is like a room without windows". Horace Mann.
We agree wholeheartedly and so the idea of these stunning horseshoe bookends was created. Handmade from wood and reclaimed horseshoes, these book ends suggest a passion for reading and a love for horses and the outdoors to anyone who sees them in your home.
Crafted from either reclaimed wood with a natural finish for a more characterful rustic appearance or from sustainable new wood and then varnished with a medium oak finish for a slightly newer yet still traditional appearance, these bookends measure approximately 16 cm wide x 14 /15 cm tall (depending on horseshoe size used) and 10 cm depth. This size makes a sturdy support for books and is perfect for either paperback or hardback books of most sizes.
We can either use our own horseshoes, or for a more personalised product, you can choose to have us build one using your own horseshoes. To use your own, simply select the "Use Mine" option when making your purchase and we will email you with our address to send them to. Once the horseshoes have been received, we will remove any rust, then clean and polish your old horseshoes before creating your very own unique bookends.
Personalise: If you would like to use your own horseshoes as a memento of your favourite horse or pony, we will be delighted to build one of these for you. Simply email for details on how to send your horseshoes. Using your own horseshoes can make a very special gift for any horse owner or a lifelong reminder of a child's first pony or special horse.
Free Gift Message Service : We offer a free gift messaging service so please email with your message if required.
Bespoke : Your custom is of the utmost importance to us and If you have a specific size or design in mind, we also custom build so please don't hesitate to email with any questions. As a small family run business, we can assure you of friendly, helpful and swift attention at all times.
