Large Carl Auböck 'Melies' Patinated Brass Bookends.
Designed in the 1950s, this incredibly refined and sculptural pair of bookends are executed in patinated and polished brass, which can be mounted outward or inward-facing depending upon preference. These substantial pieces are ideal for art books and vinyl LPs.

Auböck's design career was long and varied, reaching its pinnacle of prestige at the Triennale di Milano in 1954, where he received four gold medals.
