These alabaster bookends honor our Blessed Mother, "Our Lady of Perpetual Help." Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal gift for all those with a Marian devotion.
The famous image is currently enshrined in the church of Sant'Alfonso di Liguori in Rome.
The bookends are made from stone-cast alabaster here in our shop in Steubenville, Ohio. Alabaster is a building and decorating material created from the mineral gypsum that has been used since the time of the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs. It boasts an attractive smooth finish.
Each measures roughly 6" x 8", including the 4"x 6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
"O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may ever invoke your most powerful name, which is the safeguard of the living and the salvation of the dying. Amen."
