The bookends may make an interesting conversation piece or a great gift for a “true fan” of the particular artist, song or record label. The bookends are made of genuine 33 RPM records. Please remember that the records are used and may be very old. They have been given an alcohol scrub for cleanliness but probably have surface wear, scratches, etc. (However, I use only records that would be classified as Very Good or higher if they were to be sold as functional records) . The approximate dimensions are : Height 8 1/2 inches; Width or depth 12 inches; Base (the bent portion) 3 3/4 inches. The base is of sufficient width that the bookends can be used for regular hardback books. They are not strong enough to hold a group of other LP’s – they would be too top-heavy and “slippery”. I have other listings for other artists and labels.
