Thank you for setting the record straight!!!

These bookends were designed by Bill Curry and sold by his business Design line Inc.

How often do you see them wrongly attributed to George Nelson?

I have seen a thread putting this man's words in doubt because it is a Blog...

Well, a 5 mins research... Et Voilà!

California Design, Pasadena Art Museum, Vol. 9, 1965, page 66

"Jack bookends of cast iron in a variety of colors designed by Bill Curry for Design Line Inc."

The internet and its mysteries!!!

Not so long ago (June 2008), the "LA SORRENTINA"
was wrongly attributed to Brevetti Robbiati
 in the mid-60s!!!

Yet, it was Giordano's son Alfredo who manufactured it
 in his business S.T.E.M.A.C.
between 1983 and 1989.
