This is a review of Bellaa Golden Mermaid Bookends
These mermaid bookends are pretty glam, made from a fine resin, they are pictured as a bright golden colour however in person I would say they look a bit darker. The mermaids are posed with a naked top half which will suit some households and not others. The detailing in the face, hair and mermaid tail scales is well done.
As a set of two, the mermaids are identical and each mermaid is posed sat on a rock with the intension of their back being able to prop up the books. In theory this looks lovely however, the mermaids are just not quite that heavy enough to really do it and can be pushed by a heavy book. This is a shame especially when their height at 9 inches tall works to their advantage.
- Gorgeous mermaids
- Shimmer in the light
- Too lightweight for some books
- Not quite the same golden in the photos
These two lovely mermaids are golden, shiny and make a decorative feature to a shelf, however they are a little too lightweight to act functionally at holding your books in place.
This is a review of the Creative Co-op Distressed Stone Resin Mermaid Bookends
The Creative Co-op Distressed Stone Resin Mermaid comes as a set of two mermaid book ends. Made from resin and in a distressed white colour these mermaids hold your books up together between their tails making it a team effort. Each mermaid is lovingly looking into the distance with her head in her hands dreaming of what life must be like on land. You'll want to have some nautical books to feature in between these mermaids.
The mermaids each measure 6. 5"L x 3"W x 7. 75"H, the are fairly sturdy and do have a little weight behind them to easily hold your books in place. With the mermaids being the same shape either side also makes for good positioning of the books. When you look closely at the mermaids they have a pretty face, flowing hair and the distressed look follows the edges of the hair well. The mermaids are also wearing a necklace of pearls, shells and little star fish.
The mermaids give quite the symmetrical look, they make quite the lovely gift for a mermaid lover with a name beginning with C as the mermaids are curved in this shape. I do feel if there were any overly large books that might be top heavy may snap the tail of the mermaid so I'd recommend not to many large books between them.
- Pretty mermaids
- A mermaid either side
- Can be used one at a time against a wall
- White distressed look
- Suits a nautical classy home
- Not ideal for lots of large books
These mermaid bookends provide a sweet, vintage and symmetrical nautical presence to your home. They might not hold all the books on your shelf but they can beautifully present your favourites.
This is a review of the Resin Mermaid Bookend Pair
These mermaid book ends are made from a painted resin with a distressed finish. All sculptured in white, the mermaid appears to be lying on your book shelf with the books between her tail making it appear she is swimming through your books.
The mermaid measures Measures 11 x 5 x 8 inches, and even though she is lying down still has a height of 8 inches. Your shelf will also need to be11 inches long. What makes her a great addition to you book shelf is that she is quite a hefty weight coming in at 3kg which makes her suitable to hold up even large books and cook books.
You do have to be careful not to break it as smaller parts such as the arms can break of if handled to roughly or dropped. These book ends are also two mermaid halves that make up a whole so you need to use both book ends for them to look the part.
- Beautiful mermaid book ends
- Appearance of a mermaid going through the books
- Easy to clean
- Heavy enough to hold large books
- Take care not to break it
- Need to use both parts as each are half a mermaid
This is a beautiful white resin mermaid that is solid and sturdy enough to hold your books in place.
This is a review of the Creative Co-op Mermaid Shaped Resin Bookends
These mermaid book ends are beautifully whimsical. She measures 11 iches long x 4.75 inches wide x 8.5 inches heigh which measures she provides extra support of tall books too. Made from resin she is finely sculpted well, these are intricate face details, detailing in her necklace, clam shells and in the scales in her tail. She is also holding a shell in her hands and this looks like it provides her with a bit more stability while holding your books in place. Her her and her long tail fin help to keep the books standing straight too with her body bending upwards fairly tall.
This is a pair of book ends you can imagine fitting into any nautical theme home or beach house, especially one that loves mermaids. The books ends also weigh just under 3 kg making them fairy heavy once in place and this really helps to keep the books in place as they are nicely sturdy. In comparison to book ends with a whole mermaid on either side these bookend ends need each part to really look right.
- Mermaid though the books appearance
- Show off your inner mermaid
- Durable material
- Easy to wipe clean
- The front is sturdier than the back
- You need both, one on its own is only half a mermaid
This is a gorgeous whimsical mermaid that not only can be the beginning and end of your book collection but provides a finely sculpted nautical figure to your home.
This is a review of the Private Label Cast Iron Mermaid Bookends
These mermaid bookends feature two mermaids one either side of your books. Each mermaid is made from cast iron making them a heavy solid and sturdy mermaid weighing just under 5 kg so your books aren't going anywhere!
Each mermaid measures 7.75 inches tall, 4.25 inches deep, and 4.25 inches wide, their cast iron base is painted with a green/grey enamel that appears like an oxidized copper. As each one is a whole mermaid they can even be used on their own if you have books against a wall on one side or even on their own as a pretty statue.
- A mermaid either side
- Can be used as book-ends together or on their own
- Make pretty statues for decor
- Heavy and sturdy
- Will hold up large books
- Need a strong shelf for them and books
This is a pair of heavy, sturdy mermaids who have the fab job to hold up your books whether the books are about the sea or not.
