Mid century brass bookends, designed by Ben Seibel (1918-1985) for Jenfred Ware. The line was one of Siebel's first commercial designs (if not his first). Ben Seibel was born in 1918 in Newark, New Jersey. He began studying architecture at Columbia, interrupted by army service. After his discharge in 1945, he continued his education at Pratt Institute, changing his concentration to industrial design. Without completing his academic career, he set up his own studio where he worked with a small staff until his death in 1985 at age 67. His output, prolific and varied, included dinnerware, glassware, stainless steel flatware, metal and wood tabletop accessories, furniture and lamps.
