Close up of Lucite book rack
This is an unusual Lucite expanding book rack or book ends. The two ends are each held in position with very elegant Lucite scrolls and between these are a metal expanding section to allow it to increase or decrease in size.

The book holders at each end are a coppery beige Lucite whilst the expanding metalwork has a coppered finish. Overall this is a very elegant item and I have never seen one like this before.

The height of the ends is about 145mm. When fully compressed it is 90mm between the inside faces of the ends and it expands to about 285mm, wide enough to hold quite a few books. The overall width when fully expanded is 420mm.

I would imagine that this was a commercially produced item but there is no indication of who the manufacturer was. The condition is very good.

This item will be sent by 'signed for' delivery due to its value.

Price £48.00.
UK postage & packing £5.30.
