I love the idea of putting vintage tech objects to use as decorative bookends in a living room or home office — I have a couple of pastel, original Ericophones I use for just that thing. But should you not have a pair of gorgeous, old-school cameras lying around that you can spare, ceramic artist Breck Armstrong has them for you.
He takes gorgeous finds that predate words like “selfie” and “untag me please” and incorporates them into these wonderful vintage camera bookends available through Uncommon Goods.
It’s the perfect way to bookend a collection of photography books or old heirloom family photo albums, isn’t it? Each pair is handmade to order for you so it does take a few weeks, should you be considering them as special Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gifts. (I have a couple of grandparents in my life who would flip for these.)
While these are my favorites, also check out some of his other cool housewares on the site incorporating cool antiques, including a lamp made from vintage film reels. Yeah, try explaining that one to the kids.
