Scholarly Turtle Bookends set of 2
Bought these on sale as a gift for a turtle-loving bibliophile and checked them carefully after reading the other review. This set is perfect! I do hope the other reviewer returned the bookends for another set, as I don't think they would be disappointed!

These turtles are so cute in the photo! I ordered them the second I saw them, but now they're going back. One of the Turtle's hands is separated from the book. I think it's loose solder. The major disappointment was the glasses. They come separately and aren't molded to the fit the Turtle's head. You have to bend the wire, and fight to cram the ends into the not-quite-right drilled holes in the Turtle's head. Then when you bend them, the paint falls off! They had such potential, but the quality is just too poor.
