Icon of Washington Square Park in New York's Greenwich Village.

Part of the Greenwich Village Historic District, the Washington Square Arch was erected in 1889 in Washington Square Park, Greenwich Village, Manhattan, to celebrate the centennial of George Washington's inauguration.  Modeled on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris and designed by noted architect Stanford White, the arch remains one of the Village's important urban landmarks, used as an unofficial symbol of nearby New York University.

Each of the two unique and masterfully crafted bookends is a reproduction of the triumphal arch, made of hand-cast and hand-finished crushed stone resin.  Heavy weight and tall profile hold larger items such as binders, reference books, notebooks, and magazines.
