Bookends: another chapter

Tuesday 12 April 2011 – Monday 23 May 2011
Mosman Library  

Art Deco Owl Bookends by Shorter & Sons

An exhibition of unique and fun bookends from private collections.

Bookends were a popular gift for weddings, birthdays and retirements. Their decorativeness captured the imagination and, like a shelf of books, reflected one’s sense of style and interests.

Bookends: another chapter showcases treasured bookends held in private collections.

This exhibition is an opportunity to view some fantastic pieces dating from the 1920s to the 1980s.

Included are significant works by Australian art potters depicting native flora and fauna as well as dancing penguins, cheeky cats, ebony elephants, harlequins, courting couples, horses, dogs, fish and ships – you name it and in all probability it is a bookend.
