These alabaster bookends feature a scene of St. Joseph holding the sleeping baby Jesus. Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal gift for Godfathers with the short yet tender prayer for Godchildren.
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.
"A God Father's Prayer
St. Joseph, Pray that the infant Jesus hears the petitions of my heart, and that my Godchild is kept safe in the Arms of the Lord. Amen."
