A desktop collection for nautical buffs or for anyone who appreciates a good read and some hand-carved craftsmanship. The rope, linked together, is remarkable! The bookends are the work of wood carver Benoit Deschenes, whose Quebecois studio is still in business.

Please note that shipping costs are included. Also, everything that I sell, and I mean everything, is used, antique, vintage, etc. That means sometimes scratched, dented, and worn. Imperfect. Not dusty, though. Or dirty.
