This pair of Knightly Cross bookends are crafted from carved and polished soapstone; this has given these bookends a feel and appearance similar to marble. They are fairly weighty and will be able to prop up a substantial number of books without sliding.

Often mistakenly called the Maltese Cross, the Cross Patt is strongly associated with the Knights Templar and the Teutonic Knights. The style of cross dates to the very early Medieval Period, though its widespread use came with its adoption by the Knightly Orders.
