[Faux Books] Deskset Set of Four Faux Books, All with a Full Faux Morocco Binding, and Fitting onto a Matching Inclined Bookshelf
Germany. Full Faux Morocco (Paper pastedown). Near Fine. Handsome desk set of faux books! N.d., circa 1900. Each volume is a near miniature, measuring 8 by 6 cm. With the bookcase, the height of the set is 11 cm, and the width of the case is also 11 cm. The volumes' red spine labels say "Stamps", "Pins and Clips", "Erasers" and "Rubber Bands". The set may or may not have come with these utility supplies, but the volumes are now empty boxes. It is the ensemble, with the matching inclined bookshelf, that makes this such an appealing antique item. The faux leather mimics the texture of a thick morocco rather well. Setting off the borders of the volumes boards, as well as the side edges of the bookshelf, are bands of gilt vine decoration.Corners minimally bumped. Light wear generally.
